Who can join the EAIE?

Any individual interested in the aims of the EAIE may apply for membership. We accept applications for membership from individuals.

How can I apply for EAIE membership?

Request to become an EAIE member in 2016. We advise you to pay online by credit card in order to access your benefits right away. Alternatively, we will e-mail you an invoice for your membership within two business days.

What happens after I send in my application form?

We will process your membership application as quickly as possible and then send you an invoice for your membership fee which you can pay online or by bank transfer.

How much does EAIE membership cost?

In 2016, membership will cost €210 per year. We offer a reduced fee of €105 per year to applicants working in countries classified as 'low-income economies' or 'lower-middle economies' by the World Bank.

EAIE membership is based on a calendar year system whereby the term begins on 1 January and ends on 31 December. All membership terms that begin in 2016 will end on 31 December 2016 and will remain €210 during this period regardless of when they begin.

How can I pay my membership fee?

We accept payments by bank transfer and online (Visa, Master Card and Maestro). Instructions and information about payment are given on the invoice.

How long does my EAIE membership last?

EAIE membership is based on a calendar year system whereby the term begins on 1 January and ends on 31 December. All membership terms that begin in 2016 will end on 31 December 2016 and will remain €210 during this period regardless of when they begin.

Can I cancel my EAIE membership?

Yes, you can end your membership at any time; simply send your request to the EAIE Office. However, no refund of the membership fee is possible, and any outstanding invoices must be paid.

How is having an EAIE account different than membership?

To be on our mailing list, attend any event or purchase a publication, an account must be created on our website. This means that you are listed in our records, not that you are a member of the EAIE. Become an EAIE member for 2016.

Can I apply for institutional membership to the EAIE?

No, institutions and organisations cannot become members of the EAIE. Membership is individual and personal.

Is the EAIE an accreditation body?

The EAIE does not operate as an accreditation, recognition, or validation body for organisations with commercial or educational interests in the higher education systems of Europe or beyond. No claims may be made by other organisations which imply that the EAIE has accredited, recognised, validated or in any other way reviewed their services.

Does the EAIE provide funding or scholarships for students?

No, the EAIE does not provide funding nor does it award any scholarships. For scholarship opportunities within Europe, please visit Study in Europe or Scholarship portal. Alternatively, you might want to consult the Grants Register that is published every year by Palgrave Macmillan (a comprehensive guide to postgraduate and professional funding worldwide).
