How much does it cost?
To apply for graduate membership you will need to pay the subscription fee for your first year. A full year of membership costs:
- £195.50 per year if you're based in the UK
- £146.25 per year if you're based outside the UK
- £64.25 per year for graduate technician members*
- If you join in the year in which you graduate (receipt of graduation certificate) then no subscription fees are payable for the remainder of this calendar year.
- If you join part way through any subsequent year, graduate member rates are pro-rata so the payment you make maybe less than the fee listed.
- If you're earning less than £14,975 per year, or equivalent, you might qualify for a reduced membership rate of £64.25.
*If you hold a qualification which meets the requirements for Engineering Technician (EngTech) and are looking to become a technician member of ICE, you could be eligible for a special concessionary rate.
