Each year the College offers a number of Visiting Fellowships to people who intend to engage in study and research in Oxford and are prepared to participate in the academic life of the College. Visiting Fellows are expected to be resident in Oxford during the tenure of the Fellowship. A Visiting Fellow may be elected for a period of one, two, or three terms within the Oxford academic year. Three-term applications are particularly welcome.
The dates of term at Oxford for 2021–2022 are:
Michaelmas Term (from Sunday, 10 October to Saturday, 4 December, 2021)
Hilary Term (from Sunday, 16 January to Saturday, 12 March, 2022)
Trinity Term (from Sunday, 24 April to Saturday, 18 June, 2022)
Visiting Fellows are expected to be normally resident in Oxford during term. The period of the Visiting Fellowship extends for an additional two weeks either side of each term. Accommodation for Fellows who are elected for the Michaelmas Term should be available from 15 September, and for Visiting Fellows with school-age children it is usually possible to arrange an earlier arrival or later departure date in order to harmonise with school terms. Visiting Fellows who are elected for more than one term may also be in residence during the vacation(s) between those terms.
Most Visiting Fellows are holders of university posts, but the College welcomes applications from others, including those in public life (e.g. in law, public policy, journalism, or the arts) who wish to carry out scholarly work in Oxford. Visiting Fellowships are not normally offered to academic candidates who will have reached the retiring age for academic fellows of the College – i.e. who are 68 before 1 October 2021 other than in exceptional circumstances. However, candidates from public life whose prior responsibilities precluded the possibility of applying may be eligible provided they apply to take up a Visiting Fellowship within a year of leaving public life. There is no limitation upon the field of study. There is no lower age limit, but Visiting Fellowships are not normally offered to candidates with doctorates awarded in the last seven years other than in exceptional circumstances. It is the College’s policy not to offer Visiting Fellowships to persons holding posts in Oxford or who are already resident in or near Oxford.
