Receiving visiting scholars

All enquiries received by staff regarding the department’s reception of visiting scholars must be forwarded to Department Secretary Olivia Belling-Nami. She will then forward them to the relevant department or to the PhD programme committee chair for approval. The stay is contingent upon a clear academic interest in receiving and hosting a guest according to the usual guest scholar standards. The department must also appoint a contact person who is responsible for the guest in question during their stay.

When the stay is approved, Department Secretary Olivia Belling-Nami will prepare a letter of invitation, which is sent to the person concerned.

Prior to the guest’s arrival, Department Secretary Olivia Belling-Nami must be kept informed on an ongoing basis to facilitate planning regarding office allocation, computers, creating online user profiles and other practical matters.
