Geotechnical and Environmental Research Group


The Geotechnical and Environmental Group welcomes applications from academic visitors.   Before you apply to become an academic visitor with the Group, you should read our information for academic visitors. This outlines what facilities are available to an academic visitor, how to apply, fees and deposits, formalities (letter of recommendation and requirements), visa procedure and when is the best time to visit.

To apply, you must send us:

  • Your completed application form
  • A letter of recommendation from your supervisor or Head of Department if you are a student
  • A clear indication of how you intend to pay the fees

Once we have accepted you as an academic visitor, you need to submit a plan with your accommodation arrangements while in Cambridge.

In recent years, we have had academic visitors from USA, Australia, China, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, and we invite qualified senior scholars from overseas to be affiliated to the Group during a short period of leave spent in Cambridge.
