The Visiting Scholars Programme allows academics and research students to study within the Research Institute for up to one year, usually to collaborate with one or more academic staff to produce journal papers or a book.

You will have access to excellent facilities, the opportunity to collaborate with a world-class selection of academic staff, and experience life in the UK.

The Research Institute has dedicated office space for visiting staff, and access to Cardiff University IT and library systems are provided. Visitors can also expect a dedicated network e-address and appropriate printing/ photocopying facilities.

If you are interested in the Visiting Scholars Programme, please get in touch with relevant academic staff to discuss the timing and output of a potential visit. An application form should only be requested (via the email address below) once a member of staff has agreed to nominate you.
