SU Memberships for recent grads, only £20!

Associate memberships give you access to most UCASU services and activities even after you’ve graduated. Whether you want to join clubs and societies or attend our events, an associate membership allows you to do that.

Since Covid reduced the number of in-person activities we’ve been able to offer over the last 18 months, we want to do what we can to help you build your networks and friendships at UCA. For that reason, we’re making Associate Memberships FREE until 1 September 2021. After this date, Associate Memberships will be available for just £20 per year.

 

What does it mean to be an Associate Member?

Memebership to the Students' Union changes depending on your enrolment status or relationship with us. More information is available about membership to the SU, but the easiest way to understand it is to read to compare the different types.
