Process of Habilitation

  The picture shows the process of a habilitation in twelve steps.

A habilitation certifies that a person is able to represent a scientific topic both regarding research and regarding teaching on that topic independently and on their own responsibility. By successfully habilitating the right to carry the title "Privatdozentin" or "Privatdozent" respectfully is earned. The habilitation also grants the candidate the right to teach (Venia Legendi).

For a successful habilitation, among other things, a habilitation thesis must be submitted and a course related to the study program as well as a scientific lecture must be held. Expert opinions are prepared on the candidate and the habilitation thesis, which are either in favor of or against a habilitation.

The process for habilitation can be divided into twelve steps. These steps are shown in the picture on the left. By clicking on the picture, a bigger and thereby easier-to-read version of the picture opens. The relevant documents may be downloaded at the bottom of the page.
