On 1 September 2016 the CIOL introduced a new grade of membership: IoLET Affiliate.
This membership grade has been specifically created to support:
- candidates preparing for an IoLET examination (either with a course provider or independently), and
- candidates intending to register for an IoLET examination who are not already in a paying grade of CIOL membership.
The Registered Student grade was withdrawn on 31 August 2016.
From 1 September all IoLET examination candidates must first become an IoLET Affiliate prior to entering for their examination, unless they are already in another paying grade of CIOL membership (Career Affiliate, Associate, Member or Fellow).
Candidates not registered with CIOL either as an IoLET Affiliate or in another membership grade will not be able to enter for their IoLET examination.
To assist members and examination candidates with the transition we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions. Should you need further guidance please do not hesitate to contact the membership team on +44 (0) 20 7940 3146.
