Visiting Research Student
Visiting Research Student (VRS) status at LSE allows research students at other universities to spend up to one academic session at the School at the discretion of the department concerned. VRS need to find an appropriate supervisor at LSE who will work along side of them and advise them.
This category applies to post-doctoral researchers or non-academic professionals at a broadly comparable level in the early stages of their career. Fellowships typically last from 3 months to a year. Academic candidates should have completed a PhD at the time of application.
The School may confer the title of Visiting Professor on persons of appropriate distinction whose connections with the School are appropriate to the visiting title. It includes individuals with a non-academic background who may have achieved prominence in public life, or who have attained distinction in their profession.
