The only exception to this rule is Subject CT1 which you can take as a non-member. Taking this exam will give you an idea of what is involved in studying to become an actuary.
How to become an actuary sets out the minimum requirements for becoming a student member of the IFoA
If you are considering becoming a student member we strongly advise you to speak to an actuary before submitting your application form.
