requirements for academic promotion
Requirements for academic promotion

You need to meet the qualification requirement:

  • PhD or equivalent qualification conferred by closing date

OR

  • A very strong contribution to research or scholarship or significant expertise and standing within the discipline and/or profession. This will normally only be considered where a PhD is not the usual expectation of the discipline
    • Before applying without a PhD, you must have the support of both your HOD and Dean of School to forward the application to the Panel
    • This support does not mean the individual assessment reports will fully recommend promotion
