Non-academic visiting appointments


Non-academic visiting appointments may be awarded to teachers, researchers or associates:

  1. Visiting teacher appointments are for individuals holding a substantive appointment in another higher education institution (HEI) who have a defined regular commitment to teaching, lecturing, tutoring, learning support, assessment, examination or programme development.
  2. Visiting researcher appointments are for established researchers with extensive research experience/publications, or early career researchers with a PhD and research experience and holding a substantive appointment in another HEI or equivalent research organisation. These individuals will be making a defined contribution to establishing or participating in significant collaborations, or researching projects/publications, using facilities or learning techniques.
  3. Visiting associate appointments are for professional or other experts/specialists employed by industry, charities, other public sector organisations or service providers who contribute regular unpaid specialist expert advice/support for departmental/faculty research, teaching or related activities.
During their appointment, non-academic visitors are expected to attend departmental events and participate fully in the teaching and/or research activities of their chosen department. Appointees may be asked to present their work at departmental meetings, contribute to teaching sessions or work collaboratively to produce journal articles or research proposals.

Further details

  • The length of an appointment will reflect the period of the planned contribution up to a maximum of three years. Appointments may be considered for renewal where the contribution is ongoing.
  • Consideration is being given to fees as a contribution to the administrative cost of making the appointment, security access, use of King's IT and library services and agreed access to departmental facilities and infrastructure. Visitors are also able to attend events organised by the department.

Haw to apply

Potential visitors must first identify a sponsor who must be an academic member of staff employed by King's College London in a relevant department at the IoPPN. Potential visitors should make contact with the academic member of staff to verify that they are willing to act as a sponsor. The sponsor will then seek approval from the Faculty and, if approval is granted, will be able to provide details on arrangements for the appointment.
