The RCSA currently has a few thousand members throughout the world. If you studied or are currently studying at the Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine in any of the Departments of Biochemistry, Biology, CEP (Centre for Environmental Policy), Chemistry, Maths or Physics, or the old departments of Geology (in its RCS days), Botany or Zoology – or if you are a current or former member of staff in those departments – then you are eligible to join the Association.
If your involvement was with another Department at Imperial College (e.g. medicine, engineering, the Royal School of Mines or the Business School), you can apply to join as an associate member. Associate members will need to have their application supported by two current members of the RCSA.
The main aim of the RCSA is to provide a network that allows past and present members of the Royal College of Science to remain in contact.
Members of the RCSA occasionally receive mailings to provide news of the Association including events.
Membership is currently at a rate of £10 per annum. To set up a direct debit for membership payments, please click here….
Members receive a membership card after acceptance of their application and may request a replacement (or new) membership card if the original is lost. The RCSA Membership Card functions as valid identification for the purposes of accessing the ICU – and some other facilities – at College.
You can join if you are a postgraduate or undergraduate student of the Royal College of Science (the science departments, research groups and centres). If you a student of another department at Imperial College you can apply to join as an associate member – associate members will need to have their application supported by two current Members of the RCSA.
Student membership (including associate student membership) is FREE until around 18 months after you ‘leave’ the College (so if you move from an undergrad to postgrad at Imperial, you haven’t left and still will receive free membership).
