International PhD students have additional challenges compared with their Norwegian counterparts, but these do not out-weigh the advantages of living and studying in a different culture.
Chitra Bahdur Baniya (right) and Bishnu Prasad Regmi (left) come from Nepal. Chitra is in the final stages of his PhD work, while Bishnu just arrived last January. Chitra’s work involves primy succession following glacier recession–an extremely pertinent topic to both Norway and Nepal. Bishnu’s project involves more basic biology, and could serve as a model ecological system: how the presence / absence of a major predator effects an ecosystem.
In many countries, including Norway, students are encouraged to spend some time abroad. Chitra says that in Nepal there is a kind of belief that to be a truly patriotic Nepalese, one must spend time away for a few years. No matter what your homeland, experiences abroad have many potential positive effects. They can facilitate international networking and exchanges of ideas as well as providing exposure to different working and learning cultures, or to particular expertise. A fascinating secondary effect of a stay abroad is the opportunity it gives one to reflect more objectively on one’s own culture.
Both Chitra and Bishnu enjoyed participating in the BIO+ day at Lyngheisenteret. Chitra spoke of the internal migration from the high mountains to the cities in Nepal. He wants to take back to Nepal the message he learned from Lyngheisenteret about the importance of preserving something of a country’s cultural heritage; the life that has existed for centuries in the high passes of the Himalayas is an ancient mode of living similar to life for thousands of years along the coast of western Europe. >> News in BIO+, UiB, Norway>>
