Visiting the School of Economics

The School of Economics receives many inquiries about the visiting academic (research academic) program. Regrettably, we are able to accept only a limited number of visiting academic researchers per year.

Before enquiring about a visit to the School of Economics, please read the following guidelines on affiliation, visas and HR Immigration criteria contained on the following links:

How Do I Apply?

  1. Applicants should contact a staff member who shares their research interests, to discuss collaborating on an Australian research project, their intended contribution to this project in terms of research activities, skills and background, and the preferred length of their visit (commencement and end dates for the visit to the University of Sydney, and to Australia).
    A list of academic staff and their research expertise and interests are available on the School of Economics website.
  2. The University of Sydney staff member will then approach the Head of School for initial approval, subject to availability.
  3. Once sponsorship is agreed, applicants will be contacted by the School Research Support Officer. Depending on the duration of visit, applicants will then be asked to complete relevant application and affiliation forms, and to provide supporting documentation.
  4. After providing your full application with supporting documentation to the Research Support Officer, the application will be submitted to the Head of School and the Dean for final approval by the faculty.
