This application system will guide you through the process, including deciding which registration status to go for and which professional membership body is right for you. Professional body membership is a requirement of professional registration and you can apply for both at the same time in your application.

Information regarding our online application system
We are currently improving the Common Application Process (CAP), as part of a large project and will be transitioning to a new system. The new CAP system will be launched on 1st November 2019.
This will mean that anyone with applications that are currently in the CAP system will need to complete their application by the end of the day on 15th September 2019. Our existing CAP system will therefore close for applicants from 16th September 2019. Any applicants that wish to apply via the CAP during the period of 16th September 2019 to the launch date of the new system on the 1st November 2019 will be advised to complete their competency report offline in the interim period. This will mean that applicants can still collate and prepare their application but won’t be able to submit it until the new system is launched.
If you have any questions regarding this please contact our Senior Registration Officer, Hayley McNeil – H.McNeil@sciencecouncil.org
