Student Membership


"When I first joined the RFS I was beginning my degree, relatively inexperienced and quite unsure of what to expect. Since then I have attended as many field meetings as possible which have all been very educational and very enjoyable too. I have met many new contacts within the industry...," Sam, Student, Worcestershire
