Free membership for students and teachers

We want to help improve statistical literacy and support statistical education policy and practice.  We want to encourage students to enter statistical and data analytical careers and we recognise that teachers play an essential role in influencing and delivering statistical education.

We therefore offer free membership to students (A-Level onwards) and teachers (in schools or further education colleges) who only want a limited range of online member benefits. This includes our two-weekly members' newsletter, electronic access to Significance magazine (and a discounted subscription for the print copy if required) - and of course all the opportunities to get involved and have a voice in the rest of the Society’s activities.

Membership year

Membership runs from January to December. We accept applications throughout the year: if you join before the end of August, you’ll be sent any issues of Significance magazine that you’ve missed in that year. Other benefits will start immediately. If you join from September onwards the following year’s subscription rate will apply and all membership benefits will start immediately.
