What's New

The 2021/22 academic year will see some major changes to the promotions process.

New updates will continue to be added to this page, please keep checking back for new additions.

Changes for 2021/22 include:

  • A new pillar dedicated to engagement has been introduced to the academic promotions criteria. It has succeeded the pillar for academic leadership and engagement. Leadership has been embedded across the three pillars of research, teaching and engagement and contributions to effective leadership in each of the three are recognised in the updated criteria.

  • A new online promotions system to aid a smoother academic promotions process. All candidates (except Professorial applications and Grade 8 applications) will submit their applications online for the 2021/22 promotions cycle. The online applicant system will be made available on Tuesday 19th October 2021 for cases to be submitted. The online system is very similar to the previous paper based format so please use this as a guide if you would like to prepare your case prior to Tuesday 19th October.
