Applicants are expected to remain employed during the visiting period, to comply with the UK's Academic Visitor visa requirements. and to remain as SEAC’s extended network. Funding is to contribute towards living expenses and return economy airfare. Appointees are responsible for their own accommodation arrangements.

In particular, they are expected to present a seminar paper or public lecture, produce written outputs, including a working paper and where appropriate a blog or op-ed, and to interact with the SEAC and wider LSE community.
