Professorial Promotion

This year the promotion process for inter-band Professorial Promotion (Cycle B) will be running. This means that any Professors wishing to be promoted to Band 2 or Band 3 respectively will need to submit a case for consideration to the Professorial Promotion Sub-Committee. 

The Deadline for submission of cases to Human Resources ( and to Faculty Deans is the 22nd October 2018.

The process for a promotion is two-fold:


  • Step One is that there is a meeting in November where the case will be reviewed by the Professorial Promotion Sub-Committee to determine whether the case is a prima facie case. If this is the case then HR will write out to external references.
  • Step Two is a meeting in the summer term when all references have been returned. The Sub-Committee will meet to review the case alongside the references received and determine whether there is a case for promotion to either Band 2 or 3.


Please review the attached documentation to ensure your case is prepared for submission:



The Deadline for professors to submit their cases to HR AND their Faculty Dean is 22 October 2018.
