• Room photos and quick update

    Sorry it’s been a while since I last updated – freshers week has been a bit hectic, and my lectures have started now, so I’m still kept busy! The best thing to do is apparently to write them up on the night you get them, which has proved far more difficult and time consuming than I […]

  • Arrival Weekend

    Hi guys – safe to say it’s been a busy few days! I arrived in Dundee about midday yesterday, and I’m still getting everything unpacked and organised. Five out of six of my flatmates have arrived, and everyone is really nice and friendly. I spent friday packing, which was kind of sad – I was […]

  • Journey to the Centre of Ikea

    Yes, I am afraid I’m posting again already! I think I may also have promised a guide to looking at universities as my second post, but I got back from Ikea today doing shopping for halls! (And it’s my blog so you all must indulge MY WHIMS). Plus, those are really long posts, so I’m going to alternate […]

  • The Great Big Rambling Introduction

    Hello students! My name is Fiona Curran, and I’m here to take you through my first year at Dundee University! Hopefully this blog should provide an in-depth description of what it’s like to live, work and play in the city (and, you know, study – apparently that’s what you do in higher education) and help you […]
