Hosting Researchers / Work Experience Students / Volunteers

School and units across the university may host visiting researchers, work experience students and volunteers either on a formal or informal basis. Not withstanding how the hosting of the person has been arranged, all persons hosted by the university in a working capacity must be treated equally.

The SIRC Office has developed a UCD Guide for Schools/ Units Hosting Researchers/ Persons on Work Experience/ Volunteer which outlines the hosts responsibilities towards such persons, including minors and requirements for both formal and informal arrangements.

In the case of formal arrangements, any formal contract should be approved by UCD Legal before signing. Any requests regarding insurance provisions by the university must be confirmed with the SIRC Office and insurance details provided by the sponsor may be chceked with the SIRC Office, where relevant.
