We welcome visitors from other institutions to learn, study and help enrich our collaborative intellectual community
We welcome postgraduate students from other institutions who wish to spend time as a visiting student here at Lancaster. As a visiting student you will have access to postgraduate modules and computing and library facilities, as well as the opportunity to meet our staff and students and join in with seminars workshops and other events. PhD students will also have supervision by a named supervisor and access to shared office space.
Please note that if you wish to attend MA and Faculty Research modules you should time your visit so that it falls during the autumn and the spring terms when the majority of these modules are being taught.
For those interested in applying for the SOCRATES and ERASMUS exchange programmes, please visit Lancaster's study abroad pages.
If you are interested in visiting us outside of these programmes, we encourage you to discuss this possibility informally with a staff member before submitting an application, as your application will need to be accepted by a staff member prior to your visit.
Visiting PhD students pay a £500 registration fee. For stays of 3 months or less this will be the only fee payable. For visits greater than three months, visiting PhD students will pay 25% of the standard PGR fee for each additional quarter year or part thereof. Students visiting for a full academic year will pay 100% of the standard fee. Visiting MA students will pay a monthly fee (calculated as the standard fee/12). Current fee levels are available from the Student Registry. The fees must be paid upon registration with the Postgraduate Office at the start of your visit.
