The aim of this Student level of membership of SAPH is:
“To encourage Students training to become professional Homoeopaths to benefit from membership of SAPH at a reduced price.”
Terms of membership as a Student member:
1. Anyone studying homoeopathy at an approved College of Homoeopathy may apply to become a Student member of SAPH.

3. Application for Student membership shall be made in the method designated by the SAPH Council from time to time.
4. The SAPH Council has the right to admit or refuse student membership.
5. Termination of Student membership. The Student membership status is a privilege and may be withdrawn if the member is deemed to be bringing SAPH, its Council, its members or homoeopathy in general or in Scotland into disrepute.
6. If SAPH Student membership is refused or terminated, the Council is not obliged to give reasons for its decision.
7. Joining fee: the full annual subscription shall be the joining fee, no matter at what point in the year the application is made, and it must be received before the application will be considered. If accepted, no further annual subscription as a Student member will be payable for that year.
8. The annual subscription for Student members of SAPH shall decided by the Council annually and approved by the members in AGM.

12. Student members neither have nor may they claim any professional or voting rights of SAPH membership.
13. Being accepted as a Student member of SAPH denotes no confirmation or approval by the SAPH Council of that individual’s ability to practise homoeopathy.
