Academic Visitor Guidance Notes and Request for Invite Form
All academic visitors to the University whose visit lasts for more than 2 weeks must receive a formal invitation from Human Resources prior to their visit. Please ensure that you read the guidance notes before completing the Request for Invite Letter form as some academic visitors from outside the UK/EEA may require sponsorship before their visit can commence.
It has also been highlighted that the growing number of overseas visitors, staff and students coming to the University with their families is putting an increasing burden on local schools. A working group chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching) and involving the Director of Education (Leicestershire County Council) agreed that in an effort to minimalise the difficulties being experienced, the University will make every effort to provide advance warning of the arrival of any overseas school age children.
We will therefore include a request for details of any school age children who will be joining the visitor with the formal invitation - see Children's Education Form - School Liaison Scheme for your Children
