Visiting Fellowship


Are you a high-level practitioner in the field of journalism or academia? The Reuters Institute occasionally accepts a very small number of Visiting Fellowships from senior practitioners working in journalism, news media or academic fields closely related to, and relevant to, our own research projects.

Visiting Fellowships are non-salaried, visiting positions designed to foster close links with people working within other media organisations, whose work aligns closely with the aims and ambitions of the Reuters Institute.

The term of a Visiting Fellowship is for one to three academic terms and requires an affiliation fee that provides access to relevant university facilities and services. Visiting Fellowships are reviewed three times a year.

Academic Visiting Fellows

Academic Visiting Fellows hold substantive appointments on the faculty of other academic or research institutions. These are generally scholars on grants from national research academies and foundations or sabbaticals from their home institution.

Practitioner Visiting Fellows

Practitioner Visiting Fellows usually hold senior positions in news media or journalism and have extensive experience in industry. Visiting Fellows from the journalism industry are typically on leave from their employer.
