Visiting Scholars

The IRC offers a vibrant research environment that attracts visiting academics and practitioners from across the United Kingdom and abroad to spend time at Heriot-Watt University. For a modest bench fee, the IRC provides visitors with access to the university's facilities, including workspace, internet connection and a library card, as well as opportunities to participate in research events (including conferences, research seminars and training sessions) on the same terms as regular IRC members. By thus building up its international network of researchers and research users, the IRC continues to strengthen its research capacity and the visibility of Heriot-Watt University in the intercultural field.
