SAIBPP Wits Student Chapter

Student membership is open to all registered full-time students who are currently enrolled in a recognised academic institution in a full-time academic programme.  Students enrolled in part-time programmes are ineligible for Student Membership. Proof of enrolment will be required. University-based student chapters have been established to facilitate contact with student members. Each student chapter is led by an on-campus student executive elected every second year. Students are also invited to join the various committees.
