Beginning in 2008, CREW continues to invite applications at any time from scholars on sabbatical or other kinds of leave who would like to be based at Swansea for a period of up to 12 months.

There is no funding attached to the Visiting Scholar awards but the Centre offers the following facilities to Visiting Scholars:

  • a dedicated workstation with computer, printer and internet access
  • use of the Swansea research library including inter-library loans and databases
  • mail and photocopying facilities
  • a lively research culture including seminars and conferences.

Visiting Scholar awards may be held by full-time academics, at any grade, for a period of up to 12 months. Up to three awards are made in any one academic year.

To apply, please send a CV and letter outlining your research project to:
