Visiting Scholar Scheme

The School of Culture and Creative Arts operates a Visiting Scholar Scheme with periods up to 12 months' residency available, and accepts visiting academics from a wide range of backgrounds and research fields.

During your visit you will have opportunities to discuss and share ideas with another academic in our School who works within the same field of interest. From this mutual collaboration may come ideas and, possibly, future projects.

The School runs programmes of events during term-time which typically include research seminars, visiting speakers, PhD workshops and guest lectures on our 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. The School will arrange a University Staff 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.
