Registration Fees

The following table shows the registration fees in each category. Registration fees are in British pounds. They do NOT include IECA membership.

There are discounts for IECA members as well as for FULL-TIME students at any level and for RESIDENTS of Lower Income Countries (LIC). Those registering as students may be asked for documentation of their full-time status. After you pay for registration, The IECA will check registration categories against membership history, and student and residency status to ensure you have registered in the correct category.
