Applicants for all honorary titles should nominate a member of University staff within their University host department to act as their ‘sponsor’. Applicants are strongly advised to have discussed the detail of their application with and sought the support of their sponsor prior to submitting their application to the University.

For many applicants the identification of a sponsor will be straight forward i.e. the Head of the University department which you are working with, or your University collaborator. In the absence of an obvious sponsor, please contact Lesley Clissold ( for advice on how to proceed.


Individuals wishing to apply will need to submit relevant documentation to their University host department depending on what they are applying for:

Title considerations

Applications received via the College honorary titles inbox will be sent to the relevant panel for consideration.

In addition to your application the College will seek a reference for all clinical/allied health professionals from the NHS Trust in which they are employed, or their designated body, to ensure they are in good standing with both their professional/statutory or regulatory body and their employing organisation and to ensure it is supportive of any application. All clinical applicants employed by an NHS Trust will be expected to have discussed their application with their Clinical Director and Medical Director.
