UNSW Promotion Policy, Procedures and Guidelines

This policy details how academic staff who can demonstrate sustained excellence in research, education, social engagement, global impact and leadership may be promoted.

Out-of-rounds promotion will be used only in exceptional circumstances where the Dean can make the case that promotion is critically important to the University.
