Top tips for organising a PhD exchange visit

I just noticed that this article by Sarah Marten recently appeared on the jobs.ac.uk website in which I talk about my experience as a visiting exchange student at the University of Columbia in New York. It also contains some tips for anyone who is thinking of organising such a visit—something I would highly recommend. Visiting and studying in New York was one of the highlights of my PhD experience, not to mention being where my wife and I got engaged!

The article is a companion to this piece, which describes my transition from a career in IT to one in philosophy. Comments on both, or other people’s exchange visit experiences, are welcome below.
