Visiting Scholar Scheme

The Centre for Urban History at the University of Leicester operates a Visiting Scholar Scheme. Periods of 3-12 months' residency are available. The Centre provides office space, a PC and full faculty privileges to University facilities.

The Centre for Urban History is located in the Marc Fitch Historical Institute which it shares with the Centre for English Local History, the East Midlands Oral History Archive (EMOHA), and doctoral students from the School of History. Leicester is 70 minutes from central London and there are six county record offices within one hour.

Mayer Ágnes Zsófia and Estefania Calo García have each written a few lines about their time at the Centre, which provide an insight into the experience of being a visiting scholar.

Further enquiries can be made, in the first instance, to Professor Roey Sweet.
