Full membership is open to any person with an interest in the teaching and research of German Studies at university level. Membership is not limited to any geographical area. Annual membership fee: £40 (full time), or £25 (part time and early career researchers). Those on contracts paid at below Grade 7, or equivalent, should pay the reduced rate. You can pay in Euros at the equivalent rates.
