Visiting postgraduate researchers
The University is happy to be able to host a small number of excellent visiting postgraduate researchers.
We especially welcome those whose research interests fit closely with those of the research we are currently engaged in our research centres and groups, including those with whom we already collaborate.

How long will it take?
As a Postgraduate Visiting Researcher at the University of Surrey you will be registered on our student records system and provided with an email account, you will also have access to appropriate university facilities for the duration of your visit.
Currently the University does not charge a tuition fee to Visiting Postgraduate Researchers. However, the University reserves the right to charge a bench fee, in appropriate cases. These additional expenditures may be incurred if you are required to purchase special equipment, attend field courses, or undertake study periods overseas etc. Modest charges are also made by some Faculties/Departments for supplementary materials or services. Details of such expenses may be obtained from the appropriate Faculty/Department and you are advised to check this with your proposed supervisor before making an application.
