Academic Promotion Procedure

(including Accelerated Progression)

‘Promotion’ is the procedure giving an individual the opportunity to move within the academic career pathway framework (PDF, 176kB) to a new role profile level on the basis of peer reviewed achievement.

This involves providing evidence of the relevant level(s) of excellence required for the pathway/profile in question. Promotion is possible to the level d2 (Reader) and level e (Professor).

The Promotion Procedure also deals with exceptional cases of accelerated progression from staff on profile levels b or c to level d1 (Senior Lecturer / Senior Research Fellow / Senior Teaching Fellow) ahead of their expected progression date.
