Our vibrant visitor programme enriches the culture and knowledge of the School, develops innovative and productive collaborations, and creates global networks to generate solutions and share best practices.

The School recognises and appreciates the valuable contribution that visitors make to the work and life of the institution and welcomes applications from Visiting Scholars and Visiting Fellows of Practice.

Visiting Scholars have a doctorate or an equivalent academic qualification and are currently employed at another Higher Education Institution (or an equivalent research organisation).

Visiting Fellows of Practice are individuals working as practitioners in a policy-related area.

Visitor applications

Visitor applications are considered quarterly in a gathered field.

The next application deadline is Friday 6 January 2023 for visitors joining from April 2023.

You will receive a response within a month of the application deadline.

If you are interested in applying to be a visitor please contact our team at visitors@bsg.ox.ac.uk for more information and a visitor application form.

Visitors to the School will normally be expected to have an agreed sponsor from the Blavatnik School faculty, alignment with the School’s strategic priorities and research, and cover a monthly bench fee during their stay.

Please note that due to the high level of visitor requests the School receives we are unable to offer Blavatnik School affiliation to all applicants.
