Guidelines for Honorary Appointments (formerly Special Appointments)


  1. For the 2018-2019 round there is an additional title and that is Honorary Fellow. This new title may be used where a senior and eminent appointment is proposed but where it is not appropriate to award the individual concerned with an acaedmic title.
  2. Honorary Professor and Honorary Fellow appointments are dealt with by the Registrar's Office. Appointment of Honorary Associate Professors and Honorary Assistant Professors are dealt with through the Schools.

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

The deadline for the 2018 round is 29 March 2018.
