In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the Sydney Law School Visitors Program is not currently accepting applications. 2021 applications will be reviewed on a case by case basis in alignment with Government requirements and University procedures for a safe return to campus.
The many exceptional experts who visit Sydney Law School create valuable opportunities for the exchange of ideas and research, and facilitate ongoing national and international research links and collaborations.
Visitors contribute to Sydney Law School by:
We seek applications from domestic and international scholars of high standing at any stage in their career. For example, you may wish to spend a period conducting research at Sydney Law School while on sabbatical leave or you may wish to visit for a shorter period.
International visitors often require a visa. In some cases, the application is straightforward and can be completed online. In other cases, you may require a letter of invitation from the University. As a visitor, it is your responsibility to ensure you hold a valid visa for entry into Australia that will allow you to engage in all the activities you wish to undertake during your stay.
Please lodge your visitor's program application at least four months before your intended visit to allow sufficient time for visa processing. For any assistance please contact our Visitors and Casuals Coordinator - details on the right.
NOTE: The visa process is not available for international visitors who wish only to pursue their own personal research that does not contribute to the University of Sydney's research productivity.
