Good Experience
It was good experience for a co-op job. Everyday I would help out in the office, I learned a lot from this job. Like how universities work in terms of handling exams, etc. It was not a hard job.

Environnement pour les chercheurs
University of York se trouve dans une petite ville historique. Je dirais que c'est idéal pour les chercheurs. Mais pour moi, c'est un peu trop tranquille.

Needs to be more forward thinking
To a degree stuck in an old fashion mindset and needs to be more innovative and forward thinking. Many people with potential but leadership holds them back a bit
