Academic visitors

A number of academic visitors are accepted by the Department each year depending on the space available. If you are interested in joining the Department as a visitor, you first need to contact a current member of staff and seek their agreement to host you in their group.

Facilities

As an academic visitor, you can attend lectures and seminars, use appropriate facilities in the Department and Department Library, and generally join in the life of the Department.

Fee

There is a charge of £100 per month (2009/10 fee) to cover the provision of facilities. It is possible, in special circumstances, to apply for a reduction of this fee. Please discuss with your host.

Application procedure

If you would like to apply for academic visitor status and have found a member of the Department who would be willing to host you, you and your host should complete the Visitors Form and forward it to the Department Administrator (Catherine Butler; Catherine.Butler@plantsci.cam.ac.uk).

UK entry

The UK Border Agency has introduced new entry rules for academic visitors from overseas. Please check with the Department Administrator in advance of your proposed visit.

Accommodation

The Department is unable to help with accommodation. There is a Cambridge Society for Visiting Scholars which may be able to help you. The University Accommodation Service may also be able to help.
