It was worth to take this exam because it gives me international qualification

I was unaccustomed to the conventional means of assessment. For 3 of my classes, the final exam counted for 100% of the grade - this was foreign to me, and I found myself needing to adapt to the new academic norms.

If you have a Laptop I would bring it because there is wireless interet access throughout the campus and the computer lab is terrible. You have to wait up to 30 mins to get a computer and try at least 4 untill you get one that works. Plus they are using really old software.

Julia R
University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Archaeology, Undergraduate, Erasmus
Academic
Course recommendations
It was a very different teaching style to what I was used to. Skimming many subjects rather than taking a few and actaully understanding them. Mainly lectures and little to no opportunity for real discussion and interaction with the course, fellow students and lecturers.

Course recommendations
The system is very different to what we are used to in the U.S. Best recommendation is to just go along with the flow and make the best of it.

The system is a bit difficult for U.S. students to work with but I wouldn't recommend changing it, just being prepared for it.
