The Visiting Research Student scheme is available to postgraduate research students who are pursuing studies at another institution but who wish to be based in the School of Law during part of their postgraduate degree in order to undertake research as part of their doctoral work. The minimum period of registration is two months and the maximum is one year. We also welcome a number of academics on our Visiting Scholars programme.
The following fee structure applies:
|Fees for Visiting Research Students (M1ER / M1ER) 2013-2014|
|Duration of Visit||Fee in £|
|Up to two months||570|
|Full academic year (September to September)||3,410|
In exceptional circumstances, these fees can be waived.
The application process is the same as for a standard PhD student. You can download an application form from our postgraduate application web page. The form should be accompanied by a CV and a brief research proposal which indicates the reasons for undertaking the research within the School of Law. Documents should be sent by email to Hayley O'Hagan firstname.lastname@example.org, who coordinates the administration of the Visiting Research Student scheme.

- QMUL library (Mile End)
- IALS library (Russell Square)
- IP Archive (IALS)
