Academic Promotion

Academic promotion at UniSA acknowledges that our academic staff contribute to the achievement of UniSA’s mission and strategic goals in distinct ways and provides them with an opportunity to progress their career by demonstrating their personal achievements in support of the University’s growth.

It is important to read the academic promotion guidelines and other support material provided on this website before you begin your application for promotion.

The 2019 round of academic promotion will open and the updated 2019 guidelines and resources will be available in late March. We have left the 2018 information live so you see what is typically expected of people going for academic promotion.

For further information, please contact Justene Knight, Senior People, Talent and Culture Consultant, on (08) 8302 1729 or email
