What is SFHEA?

Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Authority (SFHEA) is awarded to professionals who demonstrate they meet the criteria of Descriptor 3 (D3) of the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for teaching and supporting learning in higher education.

You can apply to be a SFHEA through our internal HEA- accredited PRiSE scheme.

Senior Fellow

Senior Fellows are recognised for their influence and impact on their colleagues’ student education practice. They each have a breadth of knowledge and expertise covering all dimensions of student education - design, delivery and assessment – and exemplify inclusive and evidence informed approaches in developing and evaluating education.

Our growing community of Senior Fellows encompasses colleagues from the breadth of disciplines covered at the University of Leeds and the range of professional services involved in delivering high quality student education.
