Shetland Recreational Trust Corporate Scheme Options

Students can enjoy the opportunity to join the Shetland Recreational Trust's Shetland UHI Corporate Scheme which gives members the chance to purchase a leisure subscription at a discounted rate. The prices are based on a 35% discount on standard subscriptions plus VAT. 

Students are welcome to join at any time and can call along any SRT centre to sign up.  Learn more about all the offered subscriptions below.

Payment options

Direct debit 

To sign up to a subscription (using this payment method) students should call along any Shetland Recreational Trust facility with their Proof of Identification - driving licence and bank card best satisfy SRT’s requirements but other options are available. There are a couple of forms to fill in which SRT reception staff will be happy to assist students with and the first payment will be made at this time along with a £30 administration fee.  The following payments will be collected from the student's bank account and the subscription will automatically continue until the student instructs SRT to cancel it. 

Annual lump sum

This method requires payment for 12 months in advance but no ID is required and no administration fee is charged. Students should call along SRT facilities to fill in the required form and make their payment. A reminder will be sent in the post a week or two before the 12 months are up enquiring whether the student wishes to renew.

Please note that SRT do offer one month subscriptions to all customers (see SRT Price Guide).  This can be a big saving depending on how often a student uses the facilities. The more a student uses the facility the bigger the saving and students can purchase a 1 month subscription at any time at all SRT's facilities.
