Home / Visiting PhD Students, Postdoctoral Fellows, Senior Scholars


Arché welcomes applications to make research visits from scholars of excellence at all stages of the profession especially those with active interests in our current projects. Proposed visits may be for anything from a few days to a full academic session. Applicants should be aware that while every effort will be made to provide visitors with office accommodation within the Arché buildings, priority in this regard is given to our graduate students, postdocs and stipendiary fellows, and limitations of space mean we cannot always provide for our visitors in house.

All prospective visitors should download and complete an application form (available in Word and PDF format). When completed, the forms should be sent, along with the requested additional documentation by email only to: researchpafs@st-andrews.ac.uk.

Arché accepts visitors during its two academic sessions:

  • Arche Semester 1:   12 September – 16 December
    Application deadline: 1 June
  • Arché Semester 2:   27 March – 7 July
    Application deadline: 1 December

Applications to visit must be received by the above deadlines.

If you require any further information, or would like to make an informal inquiry, please contact our office manager.
