Who will review my submission?

Your submission will be peer reviewed by SHU academics with significant teaching and learning experience who will form part of a Review Panel. The panel will be drawn from across the institution, reflecting different disciplines and professional backgrounds.

The panel will normally consist of three people. All panel members (reviewers) are Senior or Principal Fellows (except for those of you being reviewed for AFHEA via the PGR Route who will be reviewed by two Fellows) and will have undergone specific training on decision-making for fellowship which is refreshed annually. In addition to the reviewers, the panel will be chaired by a Senior Reviewer who is an experienced academic with either a SFHEA or PFHEA award. Their role is to facilitate the process whereby the reviewers individual decisions become the ‘Provisional Outcome’. They will be responsible for safeguarding confidentiality and a fair process but will not be making their own individual judgements on submissions or have a decision-making role.
