Academic visitors are formal appointments for those who wish to spend a short period (normally between four weeks and one year) housed in UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS).
Academic affiliates or visitors are appointments for academics from overseas who wish to spend a short period at UCL (normally of not less than four weeks and not more than one calendar year) pursuing their own research either individually or in association with STS academic staff.
Affiliate fees normally are charged. As space is limited within our building, we are unable to accept all those wishing to visit; our priority is focused on applicants whose research interests fit closely with STS academic staff. We encourage visiting researchers to work with their hosts in advance to arrive with an agreed research work plan for their visit.
If you wish to be considered for Academic Affiliate or Visitor status, please contact the STS Research and Finance Administrator <sts-rfa @ ucl.ac.uk>.
