Visiting the Centre

‌CCPR welcomes visiting researchers to the Centre.  In coming to us as a visiting scholar, you will follow in the footsteps of a number of previous visiting CCPR researchers.  During your visit you will have opportunities to meet and interface with staff and with other scholars and to join in the research-related activities of CCPR. 

CCPR runs programmes of events during term-time which typically include research seminars, visiting speakers, PhD workshops and guest lectures on our Masters programmes.  Where relevant to your work, you will be able to attend such events and have the chance to exchange knowledge and ideas with others researching in cognate areas.  CCPR will arrange a University ID card for you so that, during your stay, you will have full access electronic facilities and the library.  The Library at Glasgow is a first rate facility that supports many of the University’s world leading research activities and, as well as providing visitors with access to an outstanding collection of materials and services, also offers comfortable desk space you can use and computer work stations.

How to apply

You can apply at any time to become a visiting researcher at CCPR Glasgow by writing to the Director of the Centre, Professor Raymond Boyle.

Research visits normally take place during semester time (September to June) and they vary in length but are usually from 3-12 weeks in duration. Your letter of application should set out the general aims and purpose of your stay as a visiting researcher at CCPR. Why do want to visit Glasgow and, in particular, the Centre for Cultural Policy Research? It should indicate when exactly you want to come, for how long, and any resource needs. You should let us know in your application if there is any member of staff in particular you hope to meet during your stay. Your application must be accompanied by a CV.

The current baseline fee is £1,000 per semester - but a fee remission scheme may apply for colleagues from institutions in developing countries or for other strategic development reasons. If the visit is shorter than one semester then the School would be willing to negotiate a pro rata fee, minimum £500.
