KBDi Student Membership

Student Membership is open to individuals who are currently undertaking a recognised course in a design-related discipline and are not practising as designers.

  • ‘Recognised courses’ are Certificate IV, Diploma or Degree from a Registered Training Organisation, University or College in a built environment design discipline (nationally recognised training).
  • Student Membership is available once only, for a maximum of 2 continuous years. At the commencement of the third year of membership, the member will be upgraded (at the relevant cost) to Associate or Designer level.
  • A statement of enrolment (or sufficient evidence of same) is required each year to confirm Student status.

We offer two payment options for this membership.



Benefits of Student Membership include:


Knowledge + Know How, Business Bootcamp, Design Trends + Inspiration
Through a variety of events (local, national and international), a comprehensive awards program, the consistent distribution of emailed newsletters and a member-focused and accessible website, KBDi aims to continually inform and inspire its membership.
