Under 25 membership becomes Early Career

The change means that more music creators at the start of their careers can benefit from membership at a discounted rate.

Under 25 membership has become Early Career membership to allow more students and recent graduates to access the benefits of being a member at a discounted rate. 

Early Career membership is for aspiring songwriters and composers who are at the start of building their careers for only £50 a year, discounted from £92. And members between the ages of 18-24 can enter the Rising Star Award with Amazon Music for free.

 Early Career membership is for anyone who:

  • Is studying in Higher or Further Education 
  • Has graduated in the last 3 years  
  • Is 18-24 (minimum age for membership at the Academy is 18 years old)


  • Under 25 membership will change to Early Career in the members area, on digital membership cards and member emails
  • Members who may not have been eligible for Under 25 membership can apply for this discounted rate if they fit the new criteria
  • Our Under 25 bursary will now become an Early Career membership bursary
  • Benefits for Under 25 members will apply to Early Career members, apart from applications to the Rising Star Award which remains for under-25s
  • Our Under 25 website page will change to Early Career and will have a new look
