Assessment of Applications for Employment as Professor

Regulations for Conferring the Title of ”Docent” (Associate Professor or Reader)

‘Docent’ is a title that indicates a level of qualification and not a position. The Faculty Board is entitled to confer the rank of ‘Docent’ if this is considered to be to the benefit of the research and educational activities of the Faculty.
