Promotion - Full title

Full Honorary Academic Title refers to individuals who possess and contribute significant professional expertise and experience needed to support the research or creative activity, education and service activities of the University.

Please read the instructions carefully, full honorary academic title promotion processes are different to those of honorary clinical titles.

Promotion applications to Full Levels B-E

Promotion applications for full academic title are through a separate annual College or University promotion round.

  1. Discuss application with your ANU academic and clinical supervisor and determine the level (Levels B-E) with them.
  2. Complete the required application documentation on the ANU Academic Promotion webpage and send to the ANU College of Health and Medicine secretariat (E: for full promotion enquiries only).


For applications to academic promotion to full academic title Levels B-E, please notify the ANU School of Medicine and Psychology Director prior to submission of your application.

The support of the application by the Director of the School of Medicine and Psychology will be by signature on the application form as well as a supportive letter to the respective university committees.

The decision on promotion to full academic title Levels B-D will be made by the Dean of ANU College of Health and Medicine, advised by the Local Promotion Committee of the ANU College of Health and Medicine.

For research contributions, provide details of funding received, presentations at conferences, invitations to conferences and other institutions, membership of committees, assessing funding applications, etc.

Statement regarding achievements relative to opportunity

The ANU is an equal opportunity employer. It may be relevant to also prepare a statement regarding your achievements relative to opportunity.

This statement is very important if your academic contributions have been affected by caring responsibilities, chronic illness, disability, prolonged leave, fractional full time equivalent work or significant clinical/managerial loads in your roles, etc.

You should also list your type of appointment, describe how many hours you work, and how much of that is designated for academic work (teaching or research).
