Graduate student residents are able to apply to use the dedicated workspace in the Institute, aimed at providing opportunities for inter-generational knowledge exchange. The space is shared by graduate students and academics alike and is part of the Institute's broader commitment to establishing a community for human rights researchers across Oxford and beyond. Students may apply for a 12 month residency.

Please note that formal graduate research residencies work separately to our hot seat scheme in the Helena Kennedy Reading Room.
