I think that's pretty dope, I guess here in the Netherlands they often let...MSc students teach seminars... I'll be helping first years with an assignment and grading presentations. I'm not sure if they are formative marks or actual marks though. I will be trained i assume. But i guess it does count as real work experience since I'm being paid.

I do get a staff login portal, which is pretty cool 😎. Never thought i would teach at university.... 😂. (Even if its in the lowest form of capacity lol).

Sounds good haha and haha I get you! You planning on coming back to the UK after your masters or staying?

Weird question but are there many blacks? I imagine the Netherlands is quite a multi cultural place in the cities maybe not so much in the smaller towns / countryside.

Also is it much more serious the teaching and students in the Netherlands?

Due to Brexit considering moving aboard lol considering the Netherlands or Germany.

I'm black i haven't had an issue tbh... There are also definitely a few people who are black (locals), there's hardly any in research uni 😂. I'm at a research uni... I do believe there are a few more in the applied sciences uni.

I mean there's just more continuous assessment and it's a block system of 9 week's, so your max exam load would be 7 weeks of teaching... Rather than like the typical 10 lectures in the UK. There is also a less of a focus on past papers it seems at Master's. Though i hear there is more past paper revision at Undergrad.

For example I'm taking an open book exam (5 short essay questions) on three weeks of material... So roughly 10 articles... But there's no real past paper. So you just kinda aiming in the dark 😂.

Courses just have ALOT more stuff to constantly hand in. And Group work is big thing here in nearly every module.
