Harvard Research Student Exchange

Harvard-Durham Doctoral Student Exchange Programme

Harvard University and Durham University have established an exciting new doctoral student exchange programme, allowing Durham students to spend time with research collaborators based in The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Harvard, and vice versa. From computational cosmology to renaissance narratives, from pioneering new research on children's well-being in war zones to classical literature, this programme offers advanced PhD students important opportunities to further their research and broaden their thinking in their chosen field.

Both institutions believe it is important for the graduate student experience to include the stimulation of discussion, new techniques, access to documents, samples and fieldwork as well as exposure to complementary approaches to their research question that visits to other research groups can provide.

The scheme generously provides assistance with visas, access to university housing, libraries and other research facilities, and academic support for short periods (generally 3 to 6 months).

The main contact for the scheme at Durham is: Dr Fiona O'Carroll, Deputy Director, International Office

The main contact for the scheme at Harvard is: Mr Patrick O'Brien, Special Students and Visiting Fellows Officer, Graduate School of Arts and Science
