The Visiting Scholar Scheme was established some years ago to enable eminent scholars from outside of the UK to be invited to visit the School for a period of one or two weeks. These distinguished academics have interacted with staff on research matters, delivered a seminar in the School, and taken on a few other duties such as presenting one or two lectures to undergraduate classes and meeting with post-graduate students.
