BU Global Visiting Fellowship Scheme

At Bournemouth University we collaborate with global institutions and organisations through our education, research and practice.

Our vision is that by 2025, BU will be recognised worldwide as a leading university for inspiring learning, advancing knowledge and enriching society through the fusion of education, research and practice.

In recognition of the important contribution that international academics play in driving research for the future, we are delighted to be launching the BU Global Visiting Fellowship (GVF) scheme in 2019. This aims to attract global research talent from our international priority partner institutions to collaborate with BU academics in our strategic investment areas:

  • Sustainability, Low-Carbon Technology & Materials Science
  • Assistive Technology
  • Medical Science
  • Animation, Simulation & Visualisation

Each Fellowship is offered for a three year period to support the development of a collaborative partnership between the Fellow and their Bournemouth University host member of staff. Funding is available to support a range of activities that promote research collaboration between individuals and groups at both institutions. During their Fellowship tenure each Fellow will spend a minimum of one month at Bournemouth University.

Fellows must be nominated by a member of academic staff at BU. The BU nominator will complete the Global Visiting Fellowships Application Form. This collaboration will be expected to propose ambitious and innovative programmes of research and related engagement activities. The closing date for the 2019 round is 30th August 2019.
