Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What payment methods are supported for reinstatement?
A: We accept all major credit and debit cards (American Express, VISA & Mastercard).
Q: Can I set up a Direct Debit for my membership subscription payments?
A: Annual Direct Debits can be set up upon reinstatement - a 5% discount in your subscription fee will be applied when completing your payment by Direct Debit. Monthly Direct Debits are not available at this time.
Q: Can I reinstate my Registration(s) along with my membership?
A: Yes, however, depending on the length of time since you last held membership with BCS and whether or not you hold a Certificate of Current Competence, you may need to provide evidence for CPD (Continued Professional Development) as part of your reinstatement application.
Q: Can I reinstate my Registration(s) alone without accompanying BCS membership?
A: We require that all Registered and Chartered members hold an active BCS membership in order to maintain their Registrations and/or Chartered status.
