Our members can upgrade throughout the year but many often choose to upgrade at renewal time. You can change grades using our online renewal service if you are changing to Ordinary, Associate, Student or one of our Retired grades. If you would like to upgrade to an assessed or validated grade, such as Technician, Professional or Fellow, please renew/upgrade using one of the forms below.

Please note if you are applying for Fellow membership or Professional membership via the Assessed Route, we would recommend renewing at your current grade before applying as there may be an assessment process of some weeks.
