Re: BCS Why

(Link)
Well, I've been a student/graduate member since I was an undergrad, but I've never really gained any benefit from it. The main reason I signed up back then was that we had a guest lecturer from the BCS on our "Business and Professionalism" course, who said "If you come along when you're 30, and want to join, we'll ask you where you've been for the last 10 years".

In the long term, I think there could be benefits to belonging to a professional body (I'm also a full member of the IAP). However, they need to raise their profiles quite a bit first...

In the short term, I'm basically looking for anything that might help out my MSc application. There's a section at the bottom of page 2 that asks about professional membership, so I guess that Kings might like the BCS stuff; hopefully someone does!
