The Academic Promotion at the Sultan Qaboos University plays a key role in defining the requirements and level of competence of the faculty members. It is an important part of the Universities mission to evaluate the finest faculty members through their knowledge and experience before promoting them to a higher level. Hence, through the Universities continues attempt towards the development of the promotion system, we have finally established an Online Academic promotion system which accumulates all required data of applicants requesting promotion for the committee members to assess. This move helped reduce the time and effort spent in copying dossiers and other required material. All documents should be submitted through this system for the committee to analyze and evaluate sufficiently.   


Thus, applicants should note the following before commencing the process of their applications:


  1. Applicants should read the academic promotion regulations and other support material provided on the website prior to commencing their application process.
  2. All details submitted should be accurate and efficient and uploaded in the Academic Promotion Online System as per the required deadlines.
