There is a single application form which should be used in all cases, both to establish eligibility for leave/dispensation (handled by the Social Sciences Divisional Office), and to request the leave/dispensation from the Faculty (considered by the Vice Dean of the Faculty). 

The completed form should be returned to the Personnel Officer in the Faculty of Law in the first instance, to whom enquiries may also be addressed.

Please also refer to the University Regulations for the granting of sabbatical leave and dispensation from prescribed duties, Council Regulations 4 of 2004.  This section of the regulations covers entitlement to sabbatical leave for Professors and Associate Professors where the University is the main employer; and the separate rules for dispensation from teaching for Associate Professors where the college is the main employer. 

Should replacement teaching be required, please refer to our section on Additional Teaching.
