Which category of Fellowship is right for you?
The Fellowship Category Tool has been designed to assist you in selecting the category of Fellowship that is the closest match to your current practice.
The tool consists of a set of statements that are aligned to the different PSF Dimensions of the Framework and Descriptors of the Professional Standards Framework (PSF 2023). For those wishing to apply for Fellowship under the UKPSF 2011 please use the previous version of this tool. This self-analysis tool will ask about your professional activities in teaching and or supporting learning in higher education. You will be asked about the range of activities you undertake in your practice.
By using the tool to consider your current practice, your choice of statements as you progress should help to inform which category of Fellowship is most appropriate for you. There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers: the statements in each section are associated with specific elements of the PSF, and the answers you select will reflect your personal practice and should help to indicate the most appropriate category of Fellowship for you.
When you have completed all of the sections, you will be shown your results and a PDF report summarising your responses will be sent to the email address you provide. This will be useful as you start to put your application together for Fellowship or to reflect on your on-going professional development and career aspirations.
