Call for Applications for a Study Visit at Christ’s College, University of Cambridge in the U.K

Deadline for applications: February 10, 2023


Central European University’s Romani Studies Program (RSP) and Christ’s College Cambridge invite applications from RGPP alumni for a one-week long study visit at the Christ’s College Cambridge and the University of Cambridge.

The programme offers a unique opportunity for two promising alumni to familiarize themselves with the academic environment and student life at one of the world’s leading universities. The program should be especially attractive for those who might consider applying for postgraduate programmes in the UK, and to Cambridge in particular; who would broaden their academic network; who would like to benefit from the academic resources and libraries of the University of Cambridge and Christ’s College.

The study visit will take place in the Spring Term 2023 and will last one week. The successful applicants will be accommodated in Christ’s College, will have the opportunity to attend lectures of their choice, meet students and faculty of the University and the College, as well as the College’s Admissions team to discuss what may constitute a successful application to Cambridge or other universities in the UK, and will have access to academic resources in Cambridge.

Travel and visa costs, accommodation, and meals will be covered by the program. The successful applicants will also receive a modest ‘pocket money’.
