Visiting PhD

179Each year, CERGE-EI welcomes a number of visiting students for study or research stays, and makes every effort to assist and encourage their participation in academic activities.

All PhD students (typically full-time students working on their thesis at another university) interested in a study or research stay at CERGE-EI should send an official request to the Study Affairs Office by e-mail.

Requests are considered on an individual basis based on both academic qualifications and the current availability of facilities and resources of CERGE-EI.

The request should include: 
 -  Application

Statement of motivation not exceeding 4,000 characters (Explanation of why the stay is important for the student’s academic development)

What the student plans to do at CERGE-EI, who he/she wants to collaborate with (see our Faculty profiles), + whether the student wants to take any courses (see the list at Visiting MA Students)
 - When the student wants to arrive, how long he/she wishes to stay
 - Basic requirements (network connection, shared office space, etc.)
 - Up-to-date CV
 -  Letter of recommendation from the student’s supervisor (or from the director of the student’s program)
 - Confirmation of study (from your registrer office)
 - Details on the student’s ability to fund his/her stay (including health insurance for the entire stay) and co-financing of research stays (i.e. for purchasing research-related resources)

Visiting students are encouraged to present their research at a brown bag or regular seminar at CERGE-EI. Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.
