HEA fellowships

Great teachers, great learning

The University Strategy sets out our commitment to the highest quality of teaching and learning.

'The University of Southampton is an exceptional place whose people achieve remarkable things. We are a world-leading, research-intensive university, with a strong educational offering, renowned for our innovation and enterprise. This is a great platform from which to sharpen our focus with our new strategy.'

To demonstrate our commitment to high quality teaching, the university actively supports our educators to attain HEA professional recognition of their skill. This can be achieved via our Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP) (taught programme) or PREP (portfolio based).

The University also offers a National Teaching Fellow support programme for those who aspire to the highest level of HEA Professional Recognition.

As of December 2017, there were 18 Principal Fellows, 48 Senior Fellows, 560 Fellows and 58 Associate Fellows of the HEA teaching at the University.

HEA Fellowship is an international recognition of a commitment to professionalism in teaching and learning in higher education and demonstrates that your practice is aligned with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF).

Depending on skill and experience levels, four levels of recognition are available. For details of the criteria for recognition, please view the links below:

Please note: Staff applying for HEA recognition via PGCAP or PREP do so at no cost to themselves. Independent application incurs a cost of £400.
