Visiting Scholars Programme

Neapolis University Pafos has a diverse and active international Visiting Scholars Programme, hosting visiting researchers from around the world. The programme is open to academics and PhD candidates from other institutions wishing to undertake research and to take part in the academic life of the University. The University welcomes applications from individual scholars who wish to spend periods from two weeks (as a minimum) and up to three months at the University.

A Visiting Scholar whose application is successful will be granted affiliation to the University (with the title ‘Visiting Scholar’) during their visit. They will be offered desk space, and they will have access to the University library and IT facilities, a University email address, contact with a mentor who will be a member of the University’s academic staff, and the right to attend seminars and lectures at the University.

Neapolis University Pafos will expect Visiting Scholars to host a seminar within the University and present research findings to staff and students before the visit ends. In addition, any outputs produced during their time as Visiting Scholars at Neapolis should acknowledge this. Visiting Scholars will, also, be required to write a short report providing feedback on their visit and detailing what has been achieved.

Visiting Scholars will not be charged any fees by the University however they have to find, and pay themselves for, their accommodation (the University will be able to assist them with finding accommodation).

In order to apply please send an email to [email protected] with the subject ‘Visiting Scholars Programme application’ attaching your CV and a description of how you plan to spend your time at Neapolis (up to 1000 words). In your email, please state which of the five Schools of the University you will wish to join. Applications can be submitted throughout the year and there are no deadlines.

We are strongly committed to promoting equality and diversity. Our programme aims to be as inclusive as possible, and we welcome applications from scholars from all backgrounds and career stages who will be able to pursue high-quality research and engage with existing researchers within the University.
