Principal Fellow - Guidance and Application Resources

The resources below provide you with the relevant documents to start your application.

Thank you for your interest in applying to be a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (PFHEA). The resources below provide you with the relevant documents to start your application plus a copy of the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF), which underpins the Fellowship process:

We will email you these documents; however we advise that they may go into your junk mail folder. Additional information that may prove useful in developing your understanding of the UKPSF addresses the Dimensions of the UKPSF, which may help with understanding how your practice aligns with the UKPSF.

Our Fellowship Category Tool has been designed to help you reflect on your practice

After you have answered a series of choice questions, which will take around 10-20 minutes, you will be shown your results and a PDF report summarising your responses will be sent to you. You will be able to use this to understand which category of Fellowship most closely reflects your current practice and to reflect on your ongoing professional development and career aspirations.

Use the Fellowship Category Tool

On gaining Fellowship you become part of a community of Fellows and you will need to familiarise yourself with the Fellowship Code of Practice.

If you have any outstanding queries not addressed by the documents, or the Frequently Asked Questions, please contact the Fellowship Team at fellowship@advance-he.ac.uk.
