Become a Member

    Thank you very much for your interest in joining the society of Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom (SRUK/CERU).

    Membership of SRUK/CERU is open to everyone who wishes to join us.

    There are different categories of membership.

    (1) A Regular Member must fulfill the following criteria:

    If you are a Spanish visiting student or staff in the UK for more than six months you will apply as a Regular Member.

    (2) You can still join SRUK/CERU as an Associate Member if any of these criteria is not fulfilled. Associate members will include non-Spanish researchers in the UK or Spanish professionals settled in the UK and whose primary work does not involve research. See advantages of becoming an Associate Member in the table below.

    (3) If you live in Spain or other country outside the United Kingdom and want to keep in touch with us and our activities, we invite you to join our society as a Friend. If you are a Spanish visiting student or staff who will be in the UK for less than six months you can still join our society as a Friend. This type of member is exempt from paying any fees, as you will not be able to benefit for most of the society's activities.
