The SLSA welcomes undergraduate and postgraduate student members. We recognise the difficulties and pressures on students as they set out to establish themselves as serious academic researchers. For this reason, the SLSA provides practical help for students in several ways.
- Student membership fee
Membership for students costs just £20 per year and the first year's membership is free.
- SLSA postgraduate reps
Student members have their own representatives on the SLSA Board. The student reps are members of the SLSA Board. Postgraduates are welcome to contact the reps about SLSA-related matters.
- SLSA Postgraduate Conference
Students are invited to a free annual conference which consists of two days of workshops and seminars conducted by senior members of the SLSA. The conference usually moves around the UK but was hosted online during the pandemic. Look out for an announcement in the autumn.
- SLSA Annual Conference
Students can attend the SLSA annual conference at a heavily discounted rate.
Bursaries are available for student members to offset some of the costs of attending our Annual Conference and other selected events. Details of bursaries for the Annual Conference are organised by the conference host institution each year. Details of other bursaries will be posted here and included in the weekly ebulletin as and when they become available.
