Become a visiting scholar

Because of the large number of applications we receive each year, we are unable to accommodate all those who express interest in visiting for research purposes. In selecting applicants for visiting scholar status, our Research Committee considers the nature of the applicant's proposal including the anticipated research output(s), the expected duration of their research, prior academic experience and the contribution that the visit will make to the research environment of the School of Education. You are also expected to be affiliated with a university, research institute or governmental programme in your home country. This scheme is not available to PhD researchers, and if you are currently a postgraduate research student, please visit our information to Visiting Research Students.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis. Every attempt will be made to provide a decision within six to eight weeks of submission of the application. We strongly recommend you apply well in advance of your proposed visit dates.

Please see the Visiting scholars policy and application procedure for details on how to apply and complete the Visiting scholars application form
