International visitors

The College of Social Sciences and International Studies encourages visits from high quality doctoral students and researchers who wish to contribute to, and participate in the research culture and work of the College. Normally, our visiting scholars are full-time members of another university.

We expect our visiting scholars to participate in the academic life of the department as much as possible, for example, engaging in discussions or joint projects with departmental members and presenting papers about their own research seminar programmes. There are a number of options for visiting scholars to come to the College.
