Visiting Fellowships

The College proposes to elect a number of Visiting Fellows, for periods of one, two, or three terms, in each academic year. These Fellowships are intended to enable their holders to carry out study and research in Oxford and to participate in the academic life of the College and the University. Visiting Fellowships are open in all subjects. Applications will be considered from staff of any university or other institution of higher learning, from other suitably qualified persons who wish to carry out full-time scholarly work in Oxford, and from those in public life (e.g. law, public policy, journalism or the arts). In making its final choice, the College will give weight to intellectual quality, to the interest and feasibility of the research project, and to the benefit of carrying it out in Oxford. The College also aims to create a good disciplinary mix of Visiting Fellows.  It is the College‚Äôs policy not to offer Visiting Fellowships to persons holding posts in Oxford or already resident in or near Oxford.

There is no stipend, but Visiting Fellows will be entitled to living accommodation, a study in College, and lunches and dinners without charge. Family accommodation is also available. Limited financial subvention may also be offered in exceptional circumstances. 

The application system for Visiting Fellowships tenable for one or more terms during the 2024-25 academic year has now closed. 

Information relating to the 2025-26 academic year will be posted here in May/June 2024.

The College is committed to promoting diversity, and particularly encourages applications from women, black and minority ethnic candidates, and others with a protected characteristic who are currently under-represented in the academic community at Oxford.
