HOW TO CORRECTLY ADRESS YOUR LECTURER IN E-MAIL AND HOW - IN A CONVERSATION?
Find out the position of your lecturer by entering the lecturer's name in the rsu.lv website search engine!
Choose the right type of addressing:
Professor - both in e-mail and in conversation address as “professor”. In e-mail abbreviate as “prof.";
Associate professor - in e-mail use “assoc. prof. ”, but in the conversation use "proffesor"
Assistant professor - “doc.” is used in e-mail, “assistant professor” is used during a conversation;
Lecturer - in e-mail abbreviates as "lect.", but "lecturer" can be used in a conversation.
We use the word TEACHER to describe a person who can teach something, but at the university the classes are led by the LECTURER.
Lecturer = teaching staff, but the lecturer is NOT the same as “Doc”. "Doc." = assistant professor / docent.
