LSE Postgraduate Opportunities Abroad

PhD Student Exchanges

Short visits abroad for PhD students

If you're interested in pursuing an overseas research trip, the GO LSE PhD Exchange Programme may be for you. This is a wonderful opportunity to visit another institution, to benefit from additional research resources (archival and advisory) and to experience the academic culture and professional networks of another country. Successful applicants may also work on related publications/presentations, or attend conferences and workshops both at the host institution and within the wider national academic community. 

Students can undertake research for two to three months at one of the institutional partners listed below:

To apply for visits taking place during the 2022-23 academic year, get in touch with our colleagues from the Global Opportunities LSE (GO LSE) team:
