Available on the EURAXESS website

EURAXESS hosts a central website plus national sites with local information. Here are some highlights:

UK entry regulations

The UK visas and immigration website offers comprehensive information on entry regulations but its size makes it hard to navigate! The EURAXESS UK website can help you to find your way around the entry regulations that are most relevant to researchers.

Living in the UK

Practical information on finances, healthcare, family and more. The site also has a downloadable guide for international researchers moving to the UK.

Research funding

The EURAXESS UK funding search helps you find funding schemes aimed at researchers and with a UK connection. It’s an excellent source of information for those who want to

  • move to the UK to work as a researcher
  • make a collaborative or research-related visit to the UK or undertake a collaborative project with UK researchers
  • Work outside the UK or visit/collaborate with researchers outside the UK (for UK-based researchers).

EURAXESS Jobs search

The central EURAXESS website includes a searchable database of individual job opportunities across Europe.

The EURAXESS UK site also lists other places to look for jobs if you’re interested in coming to the UK.

Improving employment and working conditions

EURAXESS Rights is home to the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, as well as to the HR Excellence in Research initiative. Find out which institutions have been acknowledged for demonstrating their commitment to improving standards.

UK local contact points

Most UK institutions offer a range of services to support researchers, from career development to pastoral care and practical advice. The EURAXESS UK website lists contacts at institutions who have signed up as official EURAXESS Local Contact Points.
