African Studies Academic Visitors

Academic visitors are welcome and can apply for attachment to the African Studies Centre. They should send a CV and a research proposal directly to the Centre administrator at   Applications are reviewed by the Management Committee of the African Studies Centre. This attachment provides a University card but no access to college facilities. There are currently no funds available from the Centre to support visiting fellows, and in the majority of cases it is necessary for us to make a service charge for the use of office space at the Centre where this is requested. (Applicants are often able to charge this to their research awards). 

Visitors may also apply for college visiting fellowships advertised in the University Gazette. 

Academics working in South African universities can apply for grants from the University of Oxford Oppenheimer Fund. This provides travel expenses and a small stipend for up to six months. For details on how to apply please see the Oppenheimer Fund webpage.
