Hosting visiting scholars

UVic hosts visiting scholars from around the world to carry out joint research, give guest lectures and co-instruct courses. A visiting scholar's affiliation with UVic is short-term, typically lasting several weeks to one year.

Space, resources and colleague time available to support visiting scholars is extremely limited and in great demand. Such arrangements require an existing collegial, scholarly or research connection between the visiting scholar and a UVic faculty member or academic unit.

UVic faculty members or departments considering hosting visiting scholars should first consult UVic's immigration information site for procedures related to hosting guest speakers, guest lecturers, visiting research associates, exchange professors, and more.
