If your application is successful, an invoice for the appropriate subscription fee will be issued based on the relevant fees charged at the time of admission. Upgrade subscription fees are the difference in cost between the amount paid for your most recent renewal and the current subscription fee for the grade you are offered.

Subscription fee invoices are generated on a pro-rata basis for all applications to Qualifying membership and higher. Please note that the pro-rata discount is not applicable to applicants for Student membership, for whom the standard administration fee is waived instead.
