Inviting Staff to the university

Before inviting a member of staff please make sure that you are following the new process highlighted in the Visiting Staff Process Flowchart (PDF). All visitors will need to complete the Visitor Assessment Form

Upon approval, visiting staff from the EEA will need to be sent the Invite Letter for EEA Visiting Staff (Word Template) by the department. For non-EEA citizens the HR department will send the invite letter to ensure visa compliance.
