Visiting Lecturer Scheme and Staff exchange
Our staff are recognised to a situation whereby, they are involved in staff exchange programs for the benefit of doing research and lecturing. Our Academic staff have been to Finland for short visit lectures and one is about to leave for Britain for research in 2015.
Student Exchange Programmes
Our students in the School of Natural Resources have a privilege of going elsewhere for student exchange for example we have students going to Finland once in year for 6 months to learn out there. The program is made possible by financial support from the Finish Government through the Zambezi North South South project and the Copperbelt University.
We also have links with the Israeli government and once a year our students go on internship for almost one year. Currently we have Fourteen (14) 3rd year agroforestry and forestry students who are on internship with the Agrostudies program, the International Center for Agricultural Interns in Israel Ltd. The Copperbelt University provides financial support for travel these students.
Student exchange programs aim at exposing our students to the world and appreciate how things are done elsewhere. All our third year students have also got a chance to be attached to industry in their relevant fields to enhance their understanding of things learnt in class.
