• Week 1 – Let’s Get Organised

    We’re back! Christmas is over, the New Year doesn’t feel so new anymore. It’s time to get organised for the semester before it’s too late! And week one is a perfect time to do it, with less work than any other time in the semester we’ve got plenty of free time to get ourselves sorted! […]

  • #2018HomeStretch

    It’s been a crazy few weeks with deadlines hitting me left, right and centre, and now revision for exams is taking over, but I managed to find some inspiration for a blog post that won’t just be me banging on about how difficult this time of year is at uni! It’s always good to take […]

  • So. Many. Deadlines.

    It’s nearing the end of November and that means, at least in the Humanities, that all your deadlines creep up on you at once! We’ve all experienced maybe being a little unprepared for this so here are a few tips on how to avoid it this year. Firstly, always keep track of when all your […]

  • Weekend at Home

    It was my 20th birthday last weekend so, once all my classes had finished on Friday, my boyfriend and I hopped on the train down south for celebrations! One of my favourite things about going home during term time is getting the chance to chill and completely forget about all your responsibilities at uni. It’s […]

  • Reading Week

    I’m lucky as a humanities student that I get a reading week to catch up on any reading or work that I might have got behind on. But I can’t believe it’s already almost over! If you’re unsure what a reading week is, it’s basically a week of little to no classes where you can […]

  • Things to do in Dundee

    Most of us are here in Dundee simply because we go to University here, while some maybe were born and raised here. For those of you that aren’t quite sure what there is to do in Dundee while you’re out of lectures and free to do whatever you please, I’m here to provide you with […]

  • Living in a Private Let Flat

    The move from home to halls is difficult enough, but most of us take that next step in second year and go onto living in a private let flat, which is a whole different kettle of fish. After living here for about 4 weeks now, I think I can comment on it, even though I […]

  • Open Days!

    Well, UoD undergraduate open days are over again for another semester! I’ve helped out at the History stall for the past two semesters and I absolutely love it. It’s such an amazing opportunity to really sell the university and encourage people to come to Dundee, as well as to take History modules of course! (I’d […]

  • A Very Busy Week 1!

    Finally, the weekend is upon us after what has probably been quite a busy first week of lectures and classes for us all! As a second year history student, my timetable is still relatively busy but nothing quite like you medics and dentists out there working 9-5! Despite that, I thought I’d give a little […]

  • Best Freshers Advice!!!

    Freshers’ Week is almost over, but we can’t forget one of the most important events of the whole week…the Freshers Fayre! On Saturday 8th September, freshers will flock to the campus green to get a glimpse of the many societies we have here at Dundee. ‘So, what’s the best freshers advice?’ I hear you ask. […]
