Already a student member?

If you are like most of our members and pay by direct debit, you can relax as we will automatically renew you on or around 1st November each year. However if you usually pay by card/cheque, you can login to your personal 'MY BDA' profile and click to 'renew' your membership simply online.

As a small thank-you for your ongoing commitment and support of your profession, we'll give you a small BDA branded renewal gift depending on your year of study.
