Welcome to EURAXESS in the United Kingdom

EURAXESS UK is a British Council managed portal which aids researchers in their career development, supporting mobility and acting as a support mechanism for researchers moving abroad or moving to the UK. In addition to providing useful information and resources, the EURAXESS portal features a free funding database and job search tool.

Collaborating internationally or spending time on a research visit abroad can be very beneficial to a researcher's career. It can give researchers access to expertise, facilities and research environments that will significantly broaden their experience and networks. To help mobile researchers, we maintain a network of Euraxess contacts across universities in the UK to support researchers who are entering or leaving the country.
