The Leicester Institute for Advanced Studies Fellowship programme is one of our core areas of activity, enabling our researchers to build interdisciplinary collaborations with scholars from the UK and beyond. The cohorts create sustainable partnerships; we currently have an alumni of 24 Fellows from 18 countries.
