The University confers honorary titles on members of the community who contribute to or are associated with the teaching and/or research of the University.

A nominee for appointment as Honorary Lecturer or Senior Lecturer will be someone who is not a member of the joint staff, but who contributes significantly to the teaching and/or research of the faculty. In Health Sciences nominees may be drawn from, but are not limited to:

  1. staff of satellite institutions (the appointment may possibly be linked to a substantive appointment in the institution)

  2. persons in private practice

  3. retired staff members

The Head of Department's nomination of a candidate requires the support of the board of the Faculty and the approval in terms of the delegated authority.

The appointment will in the first instance not exceed three years, but is thereafter renewable on the recommendation of the Head of Department.

The appointee is entitled to the use of the University's sporting and library facilities.
