Student members

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 rep
    Student members have their own representative on the SLSA Executive Committee. The student rep position is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., University of Leeds. Postgraduates are welcome to contact her 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 moves around the UK.

  • SLSA Annual Conference
    Students can attend the SLSA annual conference at a heavily discounted rate. 

  • Bursaries 
    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.
