Each year The Psychometrics Centre welcomes a small number of research students from other non-UK universities who wish to undertake a period of one term of full-time research in Cambridge as a Visiting Student, but who do not intend to become candidates for any Cambridge qualification. Visiting Students are entitled to
- a Cambridge University email address for the limited visiting period;
- limited access to University computing facilities;
- use of the Faculty Library and an introduction to the University Library to secure borrowing rights;
- attend lectures/workshops and seminars as agreed.
It is assumed that student visitors come to Cambridge to pursue their independent research and therefore there is no provision for academic supervision; However, visitors are given every opportuinity to exchange ideas with colleagues and to participate in seminars. It is also normally possible to attend lectures, seminars or workshops elsewhere in the University with the consent of the teacher. Places will be awarded on a very competitive basis.
There is a fee for Student Visitors of £50.00 (plus VAT) per month. An invitation to become a Visiting Student is given on the understanding that the visitor will be entirely self-funded. Applicants from outside the EU must conform to UK immigration policy - please note that it is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that compliance with UK immigration/visa requirements is met.
How to apply
Please send an email to Professor John Rust stating details of your Institution, the purpose of your proposed visit and attaching your CV (resume). Should your request pass the first stage you will need to supply a written reference briefly recommending your application and confirming your status at your home University.
