IOPS offers prospective members the same facilities as PhD members

  • access to IOPs courses
  • free entrance to the IOPS conferences
  • addition to the mailing list and participation in other social media

Affiliated student members

For postgraduates whose research field matches the IOPS, but who can’t meet the requirements mentioned above, it is possible to become an affiliated student member. As affiliated student member, you will be added to the mailing list and receive the same information about courses, conferences etc. as the prospective and regular students.

Affiliated student members (in fact all non IOPS students) with the appropriate level of knowledge are allowed to attend IOPS courses and conferences. Students receive a certificate for every course they complete successfully. Fees has to be paid per course or conference.
