Then apply to be a senior in the 2023/2024 fall semester of the Learning Methodology course (BSc) and Preparation course for master studies and developing learning skills (MSc)!
What does it mean to be a senior?
Helping freshmen integrate into university life in mentor classes* starting in the fall alongside a faculty mentor teacher. A senior student is a great help for new students, who can discuss questions and share their experiences.
Seniors participating in the autumn also get a demonstrator contract, so that as a young student you can make the most of your extra responsibilities.
* 45 minutes per week for BSc, 90 minutes per week for MSc at a time that suits your schedule
