Subscription Information

 

Membership Subscriptions

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.

The annual subscription runs for the calendar year starting 1st January. The subscription is due to be paid by 31st January. 

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

Payment Methods

There are a range of ways in which subscription fees can be paid to the College. You can pay by:

  • Direct Debit (we offer monthly and annual direct debits for those with a UK bank account)
  • Online by credit or debit card
  • Over the phone (+44 131 527 1654) or in writing by credit or debit card
