Taking a research fellowship at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies makes you part of a dynamic research community, with access to the unique Senate House Libraries - which includes the Institute of Commonwealth Studies Collection - , free attendance to our wide range of academic events, access to a personlised SAS email account, use of our office space in accordance with our host-desking policy, and the opportunity to publish online for free through SAS-Space.

In our experience, the most successful fellows are those who thrive in being part of an academic environment, and that is why we strongly encourage our fellows to run events to bring publicity to their research, to collaborate with other researchers at a variety of career stages, both within the Institute and across and the School, and to contribute to our scholarly networks. Whether you are considering a fellowship with us as part of sabbatical leave from your home institution, to supplement your thesis research as a doctoral fellow, or for any other reason, we hope that you will take full advantage of these academic and research opportunities.
