How to apply 


applications proccess

All Visiting Fellowships must be approved by the Steering Committee. Each application will be considered on its own academic merit and the capacity of the Programme to offer appropriate supervision and support.

Please submit a research proposal (1000 words) and CV to the Programme Administrator to be presented to the Committee, along with details of two referees and information about how the fellowship is to be funded (see below). The research proposal should specify the expected output of the research (for example, a journal article) as well as how the project relates to the Programme’s current research priorities. Please ensure that the outcome is achievable in the length of time available for the fellowship.

If a letter of invitation is required for the funding application, this can be arranged and acceptance will be conditional on funding being secured.
