Academic Visitor Programme

What is the Academic Visitor Programme?

The Academic Visitor Programme provides academics with the opportunity to conduct research at The City Law School and take part in our academic community through participation in our departmental and institution research seminars.

There are two types of visitors: Visiting Fellows, who are more established academics, normally with a full-time position at an academic institution or in a senior position in government or industry. Visiting Scholars, who are either early career researchers or PhD students.

What is required of Academic Visitors?

Our Academic Visitors must have a specific research project which they will pursue during their stay. There is normally no teaching associated with the Academic Visitors Programme.  Please note that the City Law School does not offer any formal supervision to its visiting PhD students.

Faculty sponsorship is not required, however if a City Law School faculty member is willing to serve as a sponsor, he or she may assist the scholar on his or her research and facilitate introductions to other faculty members.

What resources are available?

  • Academic Visitors will be granted access to university libraries and services.Visiting fellows are granted full access to our electronic resources.
  • Visiting Scholars are granted physical access to all CityLibrary sites, and are entitled to use the Library facilities on a reference only basis. As a Visiting Scholar you will have access to a limited number of the University's electronic resources through the use of a "walk-in" terminal at Northampton Square Library. Please note that due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to give Visiting Scholars access to databases such as Westlaw, LexisLibrary or HeinOnline.

All academic visitors are invited to attend our faculty, external and PhD research seminars.  We offer desk space in Gloucester Building located at our Northampton Square campus.

How long is the programme?

The maximum duration that an Academic Visitor may be permitted to stay at The City Law School is twelve weeks, or one-term, subject to the possibility of approved extension.

Visa & Accommodation

We can assist with the Visitor's application for visas but cannot guarantee a successful outcome. Applicants should ensure that they have funding for their travel and living expenses in London.  You are advised to ensure that you have adequate travel insurance and health cover in place prior to your arrival in the UK. Regrettably, The City Law School cannot provide housing to Academic Visitors.
