Sabbatical Visits

The Thomas Young Centre (TYC) welcomes proposals from TYC members for financial support for high profile visitors to the Centre for either collaborative research visits and/or to contribute to the TYC events programme, for example in a series of Masterclasses .  Visits can range from a week up to three months.

Level of funding

The TYC can contribute funds toward travel, subsistence and accommodation expenses for the visitor’s trip.  An estimate of these costs should be agreed with the host beforehand and provided with the proposal.


Applications are welcome from all TYC PIs and we would particularly encourage projects which benefit TYC by providing high quality research and reciprocal learning opportunities.

Application process

Proposals must consist of a completed application form (see below) and the applicant’s C.V.

Once completed, a TYC PI should then submit the application to the TYC Administrator who will circulate this to the Executive Committee for a decision to be made.  A decision will normally be made and the applicant notified within two weeks of submission.


There is no deadline for applications and they are encouraged at all times of year. 


Reimbursement of expenses will take place after the visit, up to the agreed level, once receipts have been received.

Contact details

For further details, please contact the TYC Administrator on or on +44 (0)20 7679 3706.
