All club memberships should be bought online through the Student Union website, which can be found via the shop tab on your clubs website. Club Committee members can see a list of who has bought memberships in a sales report.

The breakdown of membership costs can be seen in this video. Club membership prices are set by the club budget which is submitted by the oncoming and off-coming Chairs & Treasurers each year and approved by the AU Finance Committee. BUCS fees are applied to all members of any club that competes in BUCS and added to the club membership price, so when you come to purchase your membership they appear as one. To join any AU Club an individual must first be an AU member and so is required to pay the AU membership fee.


Membership refunds

The deadline for refunds is the 31st of October and to claim a refund the student must email the AU Finance Administrator. After the 31st of October, the Sport Executive Officer can grant refunds in exceptional circumstances. For this to happen it must be agreed by the club chair with a reasonable explanation.
