What we do

"The purpose of the CIPFA Student Network is to give students globally a voice within CIPFA, working with and challenging CIPFA on behalf of all students to enhance the student experience."

The CIPFA Student Network (CSN) provides a voice for students, ensures their interests are represented and supports ongoing development and networking. As part of this role we work closely with regional student societies and encourage student representation on regional councils. We actively influence the strategic direction of the organisation on behalf of all students.

The CSN committee is made up of current and recently qualified CIPFA students representing regions and sectors, with the primary objectives of:

  • Supporting students throughout their journey through the Professional Qualification;
  • Representing student concerns at the highest levels of CIPFA;
  • Promoting CIPFA as a qualification to external stakeholders and markets; and
  • Advising key internal stakeholders.

The committee meets four or five times a year, including at national conferences, at locations across the UK. Work regularly undertaken by the committee includes planning and organising the annual student conference, investigation and consultation regarding qualification development (including e-assessment) and supporting enagement strategies with students. Members of the committee also sit on several CIPFA governance boards including CIPFA Council and Students and Members Board.
