Visiting Scholars

The School welcomes enquiries from academics around the world who are interested in forging research collaborations with our staff, or undertaking research at Otago that is relevant to physical education, sport and exercise sciences.

Academics interested in visiting the School should make initial contact with individual staff with whom they wish to undertake collaborations or whose research most closely fits their own. A full list of staff and their areas of research expertise can be found on this website.

The School can offer approved visitors’ office space, internet and library access, printing facilities and access to laboratories and equipment by prior negotiation.
Visitors to the School are normally expected to present a public seminar dealing with their research to academic staff and postgraduate students.

For exceptionally qualified and experienced researchers the School may support applications for funding through the University’s William Evans Fellow Scholarship
