When you complete an application or renewal form, it is important to ensure you complete the payment section (PART C), providing us with a payment reference. Please use your surname and membership number (if known) and the date of payment. This enables us to trace your payment.

Membership fees must be paid by online bank transfer. In exceptional circumstances we can accept payment by cheque but you must clarify this with the administrator first.

You can also set up a standing order to pay your fees at the beginning of each membership year.

Members who reside outside the UK can make Non-UK Transfers using IBAN. You may have to go to a branch of your bank to do this and there may be a charge.

Many of our international members use Wise as an alternative way to transfer their membership fees however, you will need to check if this is eligible in your country of residence and compare their fees.

Annual membership fees are based on the academic year and are calculated in advance for the year from 1st September to 31st August the following year. Once in membership, reminders are sent out every July by email for the forthcoming year. Your membership renewal is therefore due no later than 1st September each year and NOT on the anniversary of your last payment in the preceding year, if you paid later than 1st September.

Please ensure to add administration@upca.org.uk to your known contacts to avoid missing the renewal reminder or the email going in to your junk.
