Welcome to our Eligibility Guide for Academic Title Holders which gives you vital information about the eligibility requirements for gaining an academic title.
The level at which a title is awarded is governed by the Criteria for Academic Performance Policy.
It is recommended that all applicants read this policy, particularly for Level D and E applications which require interview. Prior to applying for a title at Academic Level D or E, whether it is a new title or a promotion application, applicants are required to meet with the Head of their School/Clinical School, Institute, or Centre to obtain their support.
The following is a brief guide only and any queries should be referred to relevant contacts within our Schools, Centres and Institutes.
It is encouraged that all Academic Title applicants for Academic Levels A-C create and populate a ResearcherID account, however it is a requirement for all Academic Level D and E applicants to have an up-to-date ResearcherID account. Information on how to create and update a ResearcherID account is available online.
