Booking and Payment
Wherever possible we aim to run as many of our ScHARR short courses as is practically possible, but this may be in a different format to how they have previously been delivered, or were intending to be delivered. 

We are currently looking at other ways in which our courses could potentially be delivered e.g. online and which courses this would be suitable for.

Any bookings made for any of our ScHARR short courses will be ‘Covid-19 Secure’ meaning that we would ensure that any courses delivered face-to-face would only be done so if Government guidance permitted, and our venue(s) were able to adhere to all Covid-19 safety measures.

We are continuing to monitor the situation, and we will be regularly updating to comply with Government guidance and restrictions.

We would like to reassure you that any bookings made would be Covid-19 secure, whereby if the course were unable to take place in the format advertised at the time of your booking, we would offer a no-quibble guarantee that we would:

  • automatically transfer your booking to a rescheduled date
  • automatically transfer your booking to the Online version of the course
  • process a full refund, if neither of the above are suitable for you

This course is live on our Online Store, and we are currently taking bookings. 

All of our ScHARR short course bookings are initially processed via our Online Store. Payment is by credit/debit card or PayPal and via invoice (purchase order required) if required.

If your employer is paying your fees, and they would prefer to be invoiced, please ensure you have your purchase order details before making your booking and select the invoice option at the start of the booking process. Bookings are NOT confirmed until receipt of the purchase order is received at scharr-scu@sheffield.ac.uk.

If you have any queries regarding booking or payment, please do not hesitate to contact us.
