Academic Visitors

Cambridge University Library The Faculty has a scheme whereby visiting scholars may enrol as short-term visitors, usually for a period of between one month and one year. This generally arises out of shared interests with one or more members of Faculty staff, or the need to access specific research resources held at Cambridge. Visiting scholars will almost always have completed a doctorate by the time they plan to arrive in Cambridge.

The Faculty also welcomes visiting students for periods of up to one year. They will normally have completed at least one year of doctoral studies; the Faculty is not usually able to host students enrolled on Masters courses. We cannot accept ERASMUS students except from institutions with which the Faculty has an existing link – please see
