Subscription Information

Fellows and Members of the College are required to pay an annual subscription fee at a level according to their category. The payment of this fee contributes to the College's key aims of education, assessment and advancement in surgery and dental surgery. The subscription fee also allows a Fellow or Member to use the post-nominal letters (e.g. FRCSEd, MRCSEd, FDS RCSEd, MFDS RCSEd) after his or her name.  In addition, payment of the annual subscription allows Fellows and Members access to a range of membership services.

Due Date

The subscription was due by 29 January 2016. 

Payments received between 1 February 2016 and 31 March 2016 will normally be subject to a late payment administrative fee, and non-payment by 31 March will normally result in removal from the list of Fellows and Members and prohibition of the use of post-nominal letters.

If you have any questions please email our Membership Team on membership@rcsed.ac.uk or call +44 131 527 1654, quoting your full name and College reference number.

Tax Deductibility

If you are a UK taxpayer, your College fees are a tax deductible expense and you are eligible for full tax relief, which could save you up to 40% of your subscription fees.  You can even claim this retrospectively for all your College subscriptions back to 2010.
