Registrar's Department

Honorary Appointments

Guidelines for Honorary Appointments (formerly Special Appointments)


  1. The title Lecturer has been replaced by Assistant Professor.  The Honorary Lecturer title has, therefore, become Honorary Assistant Professor.
  2. Honorary Professor appointments continue to be dealt with by the Registrar's Office.  Appointment of Honorary Associate Professors, Honorary Assistant Professors and Industrial Fellows are dealt with through the Schools.

Full details of the scheme are set out in the Guidelines.

The 2016 round has now closed.  The deadline for the 2017 round is likely to be March but will be published in due course.
