Visiting scholars programme

In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), our visiting scholars programme is currently suspended. As such, we are neither accepting new applications nor processing those already in the system. All incoming visits will be postponed.

We are committed to interdisciplinary, critical and doctrinal research and encourage applications from established and emerging scholars working within all relevant fields.

Visiting scholars will be based at Cardiff for a period from a week to a year. We give preference to applications for visits of up to three months, though we will consider applications for longer stays in order to allow you to engage in research exchange with academics working in related fields.

You will be expected to pursue a specific research project while within the School and to deliver and participate in research seminars. You will be expected to make at least one presentation to staff, often in the form of a seminar, and encouraged to participate in other School activities.

Access to our excellent library facilities will be made available. We do not provide financial support for travel, accommodation or subsistence.

How to apply

Please include the following information in your application:

  • A description of your proposed area of research during the period as Visiting Fellow. The proposal should define the aims of the study, its methods and any proposed outcomes as clearly as possible.
  • The name(s) of any members of School staff with whom you have previously had academic contact or who works in an area similar to your own proposed study. If you do not have a contact and are successful in securing a scholarship, we will nominate someone within the School to facilitate your visit.
  • The duration of the stay and the confirmed or expected sources of funding, sufficient to meet all your expenses.
  • The names of two referees who are familiar with your work.
  • A curriculum vitae.
  • A statement to the effect that you have sufficient fluent command of oral English to enable you to participate actively in individual and group discussions throughout the period of your research visit.
