Get involved

Join the forum for global education professionals.

Academics, researchers, policymakers, educators and any other professionals with expertise in the fields of Global Education, Global Citizenship Education, Development Education and Education for Sustainable Development are encouraged to become a part of the Academic Network on Global Education & Learning, the international forum examining the research on, and practice of, these crucial and powerful approaches to education.

If you are an existing 'legacy' member from 2023 or earlier, see the 'Already registered?' section.

Options for engagement

There are two different options for getting involved:

  1. Membership

  2. Registration only

1) Membership

If you want to become an active part of the network, you will need to take out a membership, which as of 2024 attracts a small fee

Membership is offered not only to individuals, but also to institutions. Institutional membership offers an opportunity to build involvement and interest in Global Education and Learning amongst early career researchers at your organisation, as well as a chance to profile your organisation on our website. It is offered in two bands, according to the number of named individuals that you would like to attach to the membership as beneficiaries [1]. We have a loose idea of institutions, so as well as universities, companies, charities etc., we will also consider projects and networks that do not have a formal legal identity. 

Paid members will be able to:

  • Be listed in ANGEL’s directory of experts
  • Showcase their research and work via our website and newsletter
  • Receive support to develop regional sub-networks and special interest groups
  • Access a specially discounted rate (~50%) to attend conferences and events organised by the Network
  • Access networking opportunities with fellow members
  • Access a 25% discount on Bloomsbury publication

The fees for 2024 are:

  • £50.00 (per year) for individual members
  • £25.00 (per year) for early career researchers [2]
  • £25.00 (per year) for members based in low- and middle-income countries [3]
  • £25.00 (per year) for retired or unsalaried members
  • £100 (per year) for Band A institutional membership (1-5 named individual members)
  • £200 (per year) for Band B institutional membership (6-20 named individual members)

The membership year will run from Jan – Dec. Payment will be taken via the UCL online shop - via card payment ONLY. Payment of the fee implies that you accept the membership terms and conditions.

[1] A named individual contact will need to be nominated as the person responsible for the institutional membership – they will be contacted about renewal, and to provide the names of the linked individuals
[2] Early career researchers are defined as individuals who are currently engaged in postgraduate level studies, either at masters or doctoral level or have completed their doctorate within the past six years
[3] The definition that will be used for low and middle income countries will be that used by the World Bank:
