Student Membership

Individual membership is for those with expertise and a deep interest in matters of international security.

The IISS welcomes students receiving undergraduate or postgraduate education at a recognised university or college.

Student Membership allows active involvement in the Institute’s research, work and events, and applicants for Student Membership should show, in the view of the IISS Membership Committee, future promise to be a contributor in the field of strategic studies.

Applicants are required to provide a copy of attestation from their academic institution confirming the name and dates of their course or a copy of their university card as proof of their student status. A further valid copy will be required with each subscription renewal.
