Short courses and study days

Welcome to the short courses and study days section!

The first choice for radiography courses. Now online, as well as in print, for 27,000-plus practitioners.  The most comprehensive listing of medical imaging and radiotherapy CPD events, courses, study days, seminars and conferences.

The short courses and study days section is an online service which provides another way for the members of the Society and College of Radiographers to view the exhaustive list of events published each month in Synergy News.

The online service makes advertising your event on the sor.org website and in Synergy News easier and quicker than ever before.

The beauty of the online system is that it is live as soon as you publish your notice (following approval). There’s no need to wait until the next available edition of Synergy News.

By posting your notice online, you will automatically submit it for print in Synergy News. Plus, you can choose which editions of Synergy News you’d like your event to appear in.

To ensure that your notice appears on the website and in Synergy News go to https://www.sor.org/learning/short-courses-study-days.

Register – which only takes a couple of minutes – and post your event details.

BOOKING/ADVERTISING NOTICES

How do I add a notice of an upcoming event?

Via the Society’s website: https://www.sor.org/learning/short-courses-study-days. Here you can ‘Add’, ‘Manage’ and pay for notices. Simply follow the instructions on screen.  Remember that once you have saved a new notice it will be in draft  and will need to be sent for review by a moderator. Once you are happy with your notice, you can send it for review by clicking the Send for review link when viewing your notice from the manage notices screen. If you edit a notice when it is published or waiting for review it will move back to draft and will need to be sent for review again.  You will be notified if there are any problems with your notice.

I am not a member of the Society and College, can I still advertise?

Yes. You do not need to be a member of the Society to advertise through the study days and courses section of the website.  You will need to sign up for a non-members account online here: https://www.sor.org/user/register

PRICING

How much does it cost?

a) If the maximum delegate fee for your event is £50 or less per day (or it is is organised by an SoR country/region council/committee), there is no charge. Your notice will appear on the website up until the time of the event (or if you decide to remove it sooner) and it will be published in two editions of your choice of Synergy News.

b) If your event costs between £51 and £200 a day to attend, the cost is £175 including VAT. This includes publication in one issue of Synergy News, as well as appearing on the website up to the time of the event. You can choose in which edition of Synergy News you want your notice to appear. To repeat the notice in further editions of Synergy News, the cost is £175 including VAT per issue.

c) If your event costs £201 or more a day to attend, the cost is £250 including VAT. This includes publication in one issue of Synergy News, as well as appearing on the website up to the time of the event. You can choose in which edition of Synergy News you want your notice to appear. To repeat the notice in further editions of Synergy News, the cost is £250 including VAT per issue.

Please note that you will need to book one advert per course. It is not possible to book multiple dates under the same entry.

What do I get?

Up to 100 words. If you submit more, your notice will be edited.

When does my event appear on the study day and courses section of the website?

All notices will be checked and approved by a moderator before they appear on the website, but this shouldn't take long and they will come back to you promptly if there are any queries.

What about publication in Synergy News?

You can choose which editions of Synergy News you wish to appear in and will be charged a flat-rate fee (see pricing above) including VAT per edition in which you want your notice to be published. Synergy News is sent to SoR members on the first working day of each month, ie 1st July for the July issue, as long as the date doesn't fall on a Saturday or Sunday.

How can I pay?

You can pay with a credit or debit card via our secure payment system, or you can choose to be invoiced. Depending on the options you have selected, the system will automatically calculate how much you need to pay. For more information, follow the instructions on screen.

I am organising an event on behalf of a SCoR National Council/Regional Committee. Will I now be charged?

No. You are entitled to advertise free of charge.

If I add my notice online, will it still appear in Synergy News? If so, how?

Yes, regardless of whether or not you are charged for the notice, it will still appear in Synergy News. You do not need to email the details of the course to Synergy News as the details of every notice will automatically be extracted each month from the website for publication in the magazine. The Synergy News team are unable to accept notices that are emailed direct. All notices must be submitted via the online system.

I don’t want to advertise in Synergy News. Do I still have to pay the monthly fee?

Yes. You cannot split the package – you are paying to appear on the website and in Synergy News.

The event I am advertising has sold out but the event is yet to appear in a forthcoming edition(s) of Synergy News. Am I entitled to a refund?

If your event or course has sold out before the point of print, you will still be charged for the months you have booked. There are no refunds. As soon as the event is fully booked, it would be best to delete the notice from the system.
