• Preparing to Study

    It’s that time in the academic year when, if you have any exams this semester like I do, you’ll be thinking of your revision preparation sometime soon. I thought I’d share some of my revision and general study tips for this reason! If you’re lucky enough to not have any exams this semester, hopefully you’ll […]

  • Being President of a Society

    In this blog post I wanted to share what it’s really like being the President of a Society at university as it’s coming up to AGM time when committees are elected for the next academic year. Obviously I only have my experiences to comment on so it could be different depending on the society! Firstly, […]

  • Annual Ball Season

    It’s that time of year again when the invites start flying out for Annual Ball celebrations! If you aren’t at university yet, or if you’re in first year, you might not be fully aware of what an Annual Ball includes, so it would make sense to clarify that first! Annual Balls are usually organised by […]

  • 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 […]

    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 […]
