Timing: Visiting Fellows, Visiting Senior Fellows and Visiting Professors may start at any time during the year, subject to agreement between each individual fellow and LSEE, although we do however prefer Visitors to be with us during term time and for a period of 6-12 months.
Duration: Fellowships will normally run for 6 - 12 months, but longer visits may, by exception, be approved. Shorter visits (minimum 10 weeks) may also be considered, but this is not the School's preference.
Status in the School: The title of Visiting Fellow, Visiting Senior Fellow and Visiting Professor is given to individuals from outside the School associated with School departments, institutes and centres. Visiting Fellows have access to the facilities of LSEE, and will also be able to enjoy access to the facilities of LSE as a whole.
Funding: Visiting fellowships do not carry an emolument and LSEE does not normally offer a stipend. It is advisable that all interested applicants should firstly research the likely costs associated with living in London as these costs are high, before proceeding with an application.
Computer facilities and desk space: Visiting Fellows, Senior Fellows and Visiting Professors will be provided with an LSE login and email address, enabling them to use computer facilities at the School (for example, in the LSE library). LSEE may be able to provide Visiting Fellows, Senior Fellows and Visiting Professors with desk space, but this cannot be guaranteed.
Accommodation: the School is not able to make any arrangements for living accommodation for visitors.The LSE’s accommodation website, however, provides useful guidance on finding private rented housing.
