Academic Visitors

Information for academics wishing to visit CASA.

Affiliate Academics accepted by UCL are persons normally holding established academic posts overseas in institutions of higher education, or occasionally in industry or business. Their admission to UCL is based upon an application to pursue their work in a particular field of research in one of UCL's Departments, with collaboration and consultation with members of the department as appropriate. 

We receive several enquiries each year from people wishing to visit CASA as an Academic Visitor. Whilst CASA does welcome international Academic Visitors, the decision on whether to accept applications is largely constrained by the space we occupy: we are normally only able to accommodate a maximum of two concurrent visitors.

Academics who apply to visit CASA should be aware that they will be charged a pro-rata bench fee, which is £5,525 (2021/2022), they must indicate which academic they are intending to work with during their visit, and when this was arranged with them directly. Please also note that academics will also need to arrange their own accommodation.

In order to apply, please complete the form below and send it, together with your full CV and your research proposal, to Sandra Starosta. Once your application has been considered, Sandra will inform you of the outcome.
