Applying to be an Academic Visitor

The Centre for Criminology invites applications from research-active academics who wish to spend at least one term participating in the intellectual life of the Centre.


Applications are welcome from scholars in any field of criminology, although preference is given to applicants whose research is related to the research programmes of the Centre. Academic Visitors are provided with a workspace and access to related facilities in the Centre, but there is no financial or administrative support associated with this position. Academic Visitors are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Centre. We cannot accept visitors on this scheme for less than one month. 

Applications are encouraged from academics at any level of seniority or experience. Doctoral students wishing to spend part of their studies in the Centre for Criminology can apply to become a Recognised Student.

How to apply

We are now full for the 2019/2020 academic year.

Applications are being accepted for the 2020/21 academic year. We have three deadlines for applications: Monday 2nd December 2019, Monday 9th March 2020 and Monday 22nd June 2020.  The Centre will consider gathered fields of applications after each of these dates and let applicants know as soon as possible. Early applications are encouraged as we cannot guarantee places will be available come the March and June deadline.

Please email a covering letter and a 1-page summary of your proposed research, outlining what you hope to achieve during your visit to the Centre, to the Centre Administrator. Potential applicants should contact Prof. Rachel Condry with any queries. The fee is £500 per term/part of a term, which can be paid for securely here if you application is successful.
