Nuclear physics students from University of Zululand visit York

Posted on 21 September 2018

A collaboration funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund network between York and South African universities sees South African students visit York

Students from the University of Zululand

This has enabled upcoming researchers from two Universities of South Africa to travel to the UK and take part in this new training program designed to suit the needs of these individual groups. The latest group to take part in the training at York comprised of young nuclear physics students from the University of Zululand. In South Africa they have been working on problems which enable them to take on challenge's on various themes including energy and application. At York they have been provided training customised to cater to these research and application themes. This latest visit hosted by the nuclear physics group at York ran between 3 and 21 September. In addition to this training, the South African students also had a very nice opportunity to meet and have both social and academic exchanges with various other overseas students from Africa and elsewhere who are already working within the York nuclear physics group.
