General membership information
Anyone interested in OU mathematics can join the M500 Society. Membership is by subscription, renewable annually.
Our membership year runs from 1 August to 31 July.
If you join more than three months before the end of a membership year, your membership is backdated to the beginning of that membership year. If you join less than three months before the end of a membership year, your membership is carried through to the end of the following membership year.
Members receive the bi-monthly M500 Magazine via email and optionally as a hard copy at an extra charge, and are entitled to a discount on the Revision Weekend and the Winter Weekend. If you are already a member at the time that you pay for a Weekend, or if you join at the same time, then you qualify for the discount. (But note that there is a cut-off date for discount on late applications to the Revision Weekend.)
The current subscription fee is given on the application form.
You will be invited to renew your subscription at the end of the membership year.
