You can spend part of your research degree undertaking full-time supervised research as a visiting student at York before returning to your home university to complete your degree.
You'll have the same level of support for your research as other research students at York. This includes a specialist supervisor who you'll meet with regularly to discuss your progress. You may also take optional skills training and professional development courses and have the opportunity to teach or take part in public engagement activities.
Before beginning your application, you should contact the relevant academic Department and identify a supervisor for your research to ensure that we can provide appropriate support for your project.
If you're from our existing exchange partners, you're eligible to study as a non-fee paying visiting student with approval from both your home and host institutions. If you wish to study at York outside of an existing exchange agreement, you must apply as a fee-paying visiting student. We are no longer accepting applications for Erasmus+ traineeships for work experience.
Once you’ve found a project, make sure you complete a visiting student's postgraduate research application.
