Visiting Postgraduate Researcher Policy

Visiting Postgraduate Researcher Policy

To strengthen and facilitate research collaborations with other institutions, the university has adopted a 'Visiting Postgraduate Researcher' Policy.  This policy provides guidance for setting up visiting researcher placements for postgraduate research students from other institutions. 

Appointments are subject to review by the College Graduate School or Head of School/Research Institute Director.  Appointments of visiting postgraduate researchers may be subject to visa restrictions if longer than 6 months in duration.  The duration of the appointment should be considered in light of any applicable visa restrictions.  The visiting researcher will be afforded appropriate access to existing facilities.  The visiting researcher's home university will be liable for all costs incurred by the researcher (including tuition fees and any bench fees) unless otherwise agreed in writing.

Each College within the University sets its guidance and processes for visiting postgraduate researchers:

College of Arts & Humanities

College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences

College of Science and Engineering

College of Social Sciences
