UCISA Corporate Members


UCISA is a registered charity and does not aim to make profits, setting fees only at a level sufficient to carry out its business.

ucisa represents almost all the major UK universities and higher education colleges and has a growing membership among other educational institutions and commercial organisations interested in information systems and technology in UK education. 



Corporate membership is for commercial organisations. The purpose of commercial membership is to allow such organisations to gain an understanding of the issues pertaining to ucisa’s membership, their requirements and development plans which potentially benefits institutions (and hence the public) by driving more effective and efficient procurement processes.
