You can submit a graduation notice as soon as you have graduated, or one month before graduation at the earliest. The graduation notice has to be made because after graduation you can no longer be a member of the Union of Engineering Students. Instead, you can become a member of your regional membership association and start to receive their services and benefits. You can submit the graduation notice via online form:
When your membership association changes, your membership fee will also change slightly. Your new membership fee consists of a union fee, an association fee, and an unemployment fund fee if you join the unemployment fund. If you have been our member during your studies, you will receive an 18-month membership fee discount upon graduating, ie the union portion of the membership fee at half price.
Without discounts, the membership fees of the Union of Professional Engineers and the KOKO unemployment fund will be in total approximately €35 per month. After the tax deduction, the price will be approximately €20 per month. However, please note that membership in the unemployment fund is not automatic. The fund must be joined separately.
