Regius Professor

Regius Professor

Regius Professorships are "royal" professorships at the ancient universities of the United Kingdom and Ireland - namely Oxford, Cambridge, St Andrews, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Dublin. Each of the chairs was created by a monarch, and each appointment, save those at Dublin, is approved by the Crown. Glasgow currently has the highest number of extant Regius chairs, at twelve.

Regius Professors are traditionally addressed as 'Regius' and not 'Professor'.
