Academic Visitors

Coming Soon!

We will be uploading resources on Academic Visitors over the next few months. In the meantime, please see below.

Members of departmental established academic staff are eligible to sponsor visitors, although other individual senior researchers or academic-related staff may be given permission to host a visitor at the Head of Department’s discretion.

Staff wishing to host a visitor need to return the completed Visitor Application Form below. Please let the HR Team know about your intention of hosting a visitor at least 3 months before the intended start date.

Supervisors who wish to apply for a Recognized Student should contact HoD in the first instance with an outline of the proposal (to get HoD approval) and will then be directed to for details on how to apply. 

If the visitor will require a Visa, please refer to the Overseas Visitor Guide for Academics, and let the HR Team know as soon as possible.

All visitors staying longer than one day must report to the HR Team with their proof of right to work/visitor visa.

All queries about academic visitors should be directed to the HR team.
