UCL Public Policy


Visiting fellows

UCL Public Policy provides opportunities for policy professionals to visit UCL and to engage with academics and research in areas of mutual interest.

How it works

UCL Public Policy provides coordination and support for policy professionals to spend time at UCL, participating in a range of activities from individual and group meetings with researchers, to joining in course modules and seminars or visiting labs and watching experiments in action.

Discussions are driven by policy questions, defined in advance, matched to key research themes, expertise, and ongoing projects across the breadth of UCL.


The UCL Visiting Policy Fellows programme gives policy professionals direct access to UCL’s cutting-edge research and academic talent, as well as behind-the-scenes insight into the way academic research departments operate. The secondments provide an opportunity to build new networks in research and academia and to investigate how UCL research can respond to policy demand and help inform policy development.

If you would be interested in arranging a secondment to UCL please contact Katherine Welch (k.welch@ucl.ac.uk) or Alice Tofts (alice.tofts@ucl.ac.uk)
