By purchasing a FISH membership level, you are subscribing to our service for one year. You get access to everything within the membership level you select during that year. At the end of the year, you may be automatically renewed depending on your subscription preferences.
We understand why many people would want to receive a free trial or shorter membership terms. However, the nature of our service does not lend to short-term support. To truly experience the benefits of FISH Institute, we believe members need 12 months to experience every aspect of their study abroad experience and how we can help. Our goal is to transform every aspect of your journey, and the only way we can do that is by being a constant friend along the way. Additionally, it is important to note that your subscription includes new content (written guides and courses) continuously added to the website.
Yes, once you purchase a subscription you will be able to buy additional items if you exceed the amount given. However, you can only purchase additional items from your purchased subscription level. For example, advanced members can purchase more academic edits, but cannot purchase professional coaching hours, as this is limited to elite members only.
Our current prices displayed above are not going to last forever. This is introductory pricing reserved for our original members.
We accept a variety of payment methods. We accept nearly all currencies and offer you multiple ways to pay. Feel free to contact us to ensure FISH Institute is right for you before becoming a member. We will deliver on our promises.
