The appointment of visiting titleholders

The University benefits from affiliations with external academics and professional practitioners. We offer two visiting titles that recognise their standing and the role they play within the University.

A visiting title gives access to university facilities such as the library and an email account as well as the use of the University as an affiliation when presenting public lectures or events. Visiting titles do not carry a financial reward.

Visiting Fellowships

A Visiting Fellowship is an appropriate title for academics or professional practitioners who are expected to make a significant contribution to the University and form a substantial collaboration. Please use the following guidelines and forms to make a visiting fellowship nomination or renewal:
