The Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics hosts scholars and students wishing to engage in research in practical and applied ethics as academic visitors. The duration of visits is normally 1-3 terms. Each term at Oxford lasts for eight weeks. Shorter visits depend on the availability of workspace.
The aim of our visitor programmes is to connect Oxford’s academic community with visitors from the U.K. and abroad by providing connections to faculty members, giving access to university facilities and libraries, and encouraging participation in workshops, seminars and conferences. The Centre also organises social events to encourage visitors to meet each other. Applicants are expected to show a clearly defined research plan that directly pertains to the Centre’s activities. Before departing the Centre, visitors are expected to provide a brief report (A4 one page) summarising what was accomplished during their time in Oxford.
We currently run four academic visitor programmes: up-to-date information here www.practicalethics.ox.ac.uk/about_us/graduate_study/visit
