1. Apply to your home institution
Please check with your home institution to see if it has any faculty exchange program with MECE. If yes, you may apply to it for being sent as a visiting scholar to MECE if you satisfy the relevant requirements.
2. Get nominated by your home institution
After applying you need to be nominated by your institution as a visiting scholar to MECE. Usually a partner institution of MECE has its annual quota of visiting scholars to MECE. If you are nominated, please confirm with your home institution that you have a quota and check how many months you will spend here at MECE.
This is especially important if your home institution has only one quota for a given year or a given academic year. In this case, your home institution may endow the entire year as one single quota to one single person for that period; or may separate it into two or more quotas of several months.
3. Contact MECE Staff
To confirm your visiting plan at MECE, please contact MECE staff in advance. If your visiting duration is 1–6 months, please contact us at least three months in advance; if it is more than 6 months, please contact us at least six months in advance.
Please send your English resumé and your research plan to your MECE contact person.
4. Apply for your visa
Please fill in visiting-request form and return it to MECE. We will issue you a document for your visa application.
