Dr Nick Gill, a mathematics lecturer from the University of South Wales, was awarded a London Mathematical Society (LMS) grant to visit Tribhuvan University in Nepal. During his recent visit, Dr Gill delivered six lectures to postgraduate students, as part of a Galois Theory course at Masters Level.
This course originated from a six-year project, starting this summer and ending in 2021. Each course will be offered at the Tribhuvan University by several lecturers from developed countries. Dr Gill’s exciting opportunity to be a part of this project marked the halfway point of the course, with students preparing for their mid-term exam in one week, after which the course will restart, with the next module to be taught by Prof Michel Waldschmidt from Paris VI.
A significant percentage of the students are mature students, who studied undergraduate mathematics some time ago, and have returned to further study to develop themselves professionally after subsequently working as teachers.
