British Academy Visiting Fellowships scheme


The British Academy has launched a Visiting Fellowships scheme that will enable approximately 60 academics from around the world to be based at a university or research institution of their choice in the United Kingdom (UK) for a period of up to 6 months. The scheme is open to academics based in any country overseas (and active at any career stage and in any discipline within the humanities and the social sciences). Visiting Fellows will work with colleagues at UK host institutions in order to develop new research collaborations and/or deepen existing partnerships.

The Visiting Fellowships illustrate the British Academy’s commitment to international engagement and to ensuring that the UK remains an attractive and welcoming place for academics globally.

More information about the Visiting Fellowships scheme is available on the British Academy website.
