From 2014, an additional transfer fee of 10 euros will be charged for bank transfers. The respective return debit fee will also be charged for incorrect account details.

You can download a direct debit authorization for the switchover to the direct debit procedure here:

Persons living outside Europe have the option of having their membership fee debited from their MasterCard or Visa card. To do this, the office requires the credit card number, the period of validity and the card verification number (the last 3 digits on the back of the card in the signature field).

Here you will find the direct debit authorization for payment by credit card.

If you have forgotten to confirm your student status and have been upgraded to a full member, you can have this corrected at the office, either by providing proof of your student status with a certificate of enrolment or by having your supervising university lecturer confirm the expected end of your doctoral thesis. After deducting a processing fee of 10 euros, the excess amount paid will be refunded to you.

Please note that the membership fee is tax deductible. You can download membership certificates under "Registration".
