British Academy Visiting Fellowships Programme 2025

British Academy  Visiting Fellowships programme provides outstanding academics based in any country overseas with the opportunity to be based at a UK higher education or other research institution. The programme is open to academics at any career stage, and in any discipline within the humanities and social sciences.

Visiting Fellowships illustrate the British Academy’s profound and on-going commitment to international engagement. The aim of this programme is to ensure that the UK remains an attractive, welcoming, and productive research environment for academics globally. Through this programme, the Academy aims to:

  • Enhance and build new links between scholars from around the globe and in the UK;
  • Foster opportunities and encourage the development of new and future partnerships for collaborative research into the humanities and social sciences
  • To enable academics from across the globe to undertake research and/or professional development with UK colleagues;
  • And strengthen the UK’s research bases in the humanities and the social sciences.


  • The maximum funding available is £40,000.

Eligibility for British Academy Visiting Fellowships

  • Visiting Fellows must be of postdoctoral level or above, or have equivalent research experience at the time of application. Candidates should be based outside of the UK at the time of application. Applicants may be on permanent or fixed-term contracts. Fixed-term contracts must not end before the end date of the Visiting Fellowship. Independent scholars are also welcome to apply.
  • Applicants must demonstrate that they have been in contact with their UK host institution prior to applying. Note that the British Academy is not able to assist with locating of facilitating contact with a UK host institution.
