ECS membership charges for 2003 / 2004

ECS member institutions pay an annual membership charge based upon the type of institution that they are. The ECS financial year runs from April to March. Institutions that join ECS mid-term will be invoiced on a pro rata basis.

Please note that the membership charges for 2003 / 2004 have remained the same as for 2002 / 2003. Also, ECS UK no longer offers a centralised referral system, whereby institutions are charged a fee for students recruited and registered as a direct result of ECS referrals. Some British Council country offices may continue to offer this service.
