Self-taught course

Target audience

Departmental Grant Administrator staff involved with clearing the suspense account, and moving other expenditure via journals or the accounts payable module.


In order to get your booking approved, please ensure that the online course Grants Part 1: Getting Started in Research Grants has been completed, link below:

We will check your training history for completions, so there is no reason to let us know if you’ve already passed.

Once we confirm that Grants 1 has been completed, you will be set up to use our CUFS Play environment. This is required as this course is hands on and you will need to practice entering Grants journals and transferring expenses between grants using the Transfer Tool.

After you’ve been given access to Play, you will receive a further email, confirming that your status is “booked” rather than “provisional”, and giving your username, password and a link to enrol on the Grants 4 online course.
