Visiting Students

Post-graduate students registered in a similar PhD programme at another university or institute may be appointed as visiting students. Please note that we do not accept applications from LLM students.

All requests must be approved by the Law Department. The Department does not appoint visiting students for less than a month or more than six months. In order to be fair to all applicants, repeat appointments as Visiting Student will not be made.
