* Early career has been defined, for Future Physiology, as PhD, post-doc, or non-professorial position. For this conference, this also includes undergraduates and also MSc students.

In order to ensure our activities are inclusive, we have established a Carer's Fund to support members with caring responsibilities, as well as those that need carers. The grants are intended to go towards the cost of attendee's care arrangements for any meeting or workshop that we organise. Click here to apply

For more detailed information, application forms and guidance notes, please visit the official UK visa website.

It is recommended that you apply for your visa well in advance (at least 12 weeks before the meeting) as applications for UK visas in certain countries can take longer than expected.

Attendees are requested that they book early enough and apply for a visa with sufficient time prior to the conference.

The organisers cannot be held responsible if participants do not receive their visas in time, and the cancellation policy will automatically apply.

Every effort will be made to support genuine applications.

The organisers are happy to provide you with documentation to support your application which will be sent as a PDF attachment.  If you require a hardcopy to be sent to you, please include your mailing (postal) address. The Physiological Society will only send via regular post.

Documentation to support visa applications will only be provided to those attendees who have submitted an abstract which has been accepted for presentation at the conference (submitted by the abstract deadline 2 October 2017), registered and paid to attend and supplied a letter from the head of their academic department on University headed paper supporting the need to attend in relation to their research.

  • Passport number
  • The purpose of the trip (i.e. to attend the meeting)

  • Details of your accommodation
