We welcome applications from scholars from institutions abroad or from elsewhere in the UK who wish to pursue anthropological research at Oxford. Visiting Scholars and Visiting Research Students work on their own research projects, but are expected to participate in the wide variety of lectures and seminars available in the University. Visitors are externally funded or self-funded.

Before applying you must establish a link person at the School who will support your visit. Contact a member of Academic Staff with a cv, a brief description of your work, and your plans. The relevant unit of the School will approve your visit if it can be accommodated and the decision will be communicated as quickly as possible. The decision of the School is final.

Visit periods can last from one term through to one year, and applications are welcomed all year round. There is a fee of £2,000 per term  if a desk and facilities are required (£150 per term if no facilities are required). See University of Oxford term dates. Visiting Scholars are expected to make their own visa applications. Please note that Visiting Students requiring a visa should apply as a Recognised Student.
