Visiting Students

The School of Economics welcomes applications from visiting research students, typically for a period of three, six, nine or 12 months.

If you are successful in the application process, you will receive an offer.

Application stages

There are three essential stages:

  1. You need to complete and submit an application form which can be obtained by emailing There is a pro rata fee payable by visitors.
  2. Your application must include a letter of recommendation from your current institution. Visiting research students must be proposed by their home institution, typically a letter from their supervisor indicating why a visit here would be beneficial and that it is supported by their institution.
  3. Once we verify that you meet our requirements, including proof of English language proficiency (usually IELTS 7.0 overall, with a minimum of 6.0 in each element), we have to be able to identify a member of staff to 'host' you as a visitor. We will do this, but it requires that there is a member of staff working in your research area.


Please contact us if you have any queries regarding research student visits.
