The BALEAP membership year runs from 1st August to 31st July and renewals will be sought in July each year, regardless of joining date.
Memberships for those who join during this period will therefore cover less than twelve months in the first year*.
Institutional membership is available to departments in any university or equivalent institution of higher education which teaches EAP courses and has at least one full-time member of staff whose principal function involves the teaching of EAP. A membership covers staff at one location in the case of overseas or satellite campuses or of providers having centres in different cities. There are currently over 100 institutional members.
Institutional membership entitles you to :
Institutional subscription : £500 pa. The membership year runs from 1st August to 31st July.
* Following the Annual General Meeting each year, a reduced fee will be charged for those wishing to join before year end; however, JEAP subscription would not be included for that short part-year.
To apply for membership, contact us and select “Membership”. You will then be sent the link to the Sign Up page.
The “sign up” fee you will see there is essentially the membership fee for the first year of your membership. This is due at the point of signing up. A renewal reminder is sent every year in July, when the fees for the next membership year are due.
When signing up for institutional membership, please choose a username that represents the institution, i.e. not the name of the current institutional rep and something more unique than “Language centre” or “Accounts payable”. This is because the username stays the same throughout your membership, even if the BALEAP contact within an institution changes.
During the process, you will be asked about the type of programmes you run, the number of students and teachers, how many staff members are BALEAP accredited and whether a course in your unit is currently accredited or interested in accreditation. Most of these questions are optional and you will have the opportunity to amend your answers. Providing this information will help BALEAP better understand and represent its members. Many thanks.
