The Oxford Philosophy Faculty welcomes academic visitors. Academic Visitor status is in principle available to holders of an established teaching or research post in the Philosophy department at another University, who wish to spend a period of up to twelve months at Oxford for the purposes of undertaking private research.
With effect from 9th November 2015, to be eligible to apply for academic visitor status, prospective applicants must:
(a) hold an established teaching post in a Philosophy department at another University; and
(b) pay an administration fee of £200, should their application be approved.
Information about the application procedure can be found below. Academic visitors whose visit is approved by the Faculty are entitled to attend lectures and seminars organised by the Philosophy Faculty, register with the Philosophy and Theology Faculties Library at Radcliffe Humanities and with the University’s Bodleian Library, and make contact with such members of the Faculty as they wish. However, they are not entitled to accommodation, an office, secretarial facilities, or to supervision by a member of the Faculty’s academic staff.
