Gaining fellowship

Colleagues who teach, supervise, assess or support students’ learning, in any role, can gain recognition for their teaching with a UCL Arena fellowship.

UCL Arena Open gives experienced staff the opportunity to gain both a UCL Arena Fellowship and the corresponding HEA Fellowship in one of four categories:

  • Associate Fellowship,
  • Fellowship,
  • Senior Fellowship,
  • Principal Fellowship.

These awards are made on the basis of your successful experience of teaching, supporting students’ learning or leading an aspect of education at UCL.

You should attend an initial guidance session and developing your application session before you submit an application for Arena Open.

Once you’ve attended UCL Arena events which relate to your teaching, supervision, student support or leadership role, you can apply for one of the categories of Fellowship by submitting a written or oral/multimedia application to an internal panel of academic and professional assessors.
