“Huge scope for learning and job satisfaction”

Pros: No matter what position you get in the university, you will be able to help out with the new kids. New students always need guidance, so whether you’re just showing them where the computer room or science class is, you’re actually doing them a huge favour. You’re also watching future leaders in the making, which is very exciting.

Cons: The only real holiday rolls around when it’s summertime. The rest of the time your nose is down to the grindstone. However, this is not a real problem, as the work is interesting and exciting all the time.

Unusual thing: The accommodation is very cheap.

“If you were the clever kid in school, you will love this university.”

Pros: Some of the brightest minds in the world are present at this university. You can almost feel the genius floating around in the air. The campus is very well looked after and a pleasure to work on. If you want to make a difference in the world or even just in your immediate community by means of education, this is the place to start.

Cons: The concise working hours are a bit of a muddle at the moment, as no one knows whether they’re supposed to work overtime or not. If this is sorted out, that would be the last of what are very few issues arising at the university.

Unusual thing: High levels of technologies in the labs (used by scientists).
