BIOS offers a range of membership options to suit all prospective members.

If you are qualified to be a member of BIOS, then we want you to be a member: it’s as simple as that.

The BIOS membership year runs from 1 January – 31 December. Student membership, which is free of charge, is a one-off and runs until you graduate. In the year that an orthoptist graduates, we offer Full membership at no charge until 31 December of that year. You will need to tell us that this applies to you, as the unversities do not always tell us.

Orthoptists in their first full year of practice are eligible for a substantial discount on the price: if you think this may apply to you, please contact the office for more information.
