Upcoming admission ceremonies

  • Friday 20 November 2020 (cancelled due to COVID-19)
  • Friday 22 January 2021 (virtual ceremony)

The Royal College of Radiologists has taken the decision to postpone the Admission of New Fellows ceremony due to take place on Friday 20 November. We have taken this decision due to the ongoing global COVID-19 situation in order to reduce the risk to our members and the public.

This event is the largest in the College calendar and we have a duty to protect our members and their family and friends, we have therefore made the decision to postpone the ceremony and move to a virtual ceremony due to take place on Friday 22 January 2021. Invitations to the Admission Ceremony and further details will be sent by email to successful candidates. Separate admission arrangements apply to those who take the FRCR examination outside London; please refer to the information that is sent to you after your results have been published.

Before you can be admitted

Membership fees

If you have any outstanding membership fees, these will need to be paid in full before you can be admitted to the Fellowship.

If you are not yet a member of the RCR and have passed the Final Examination in Clinical Radiology or Clinical Oncology, you will need to become a member before you can be admitted to the Fellowship. You will be required to settle the correct membership subscription fee in full based on your country of residence.

A pro-rata subscription fee is charged for the remainder of the year for those admitted during the November admission ceremony.
