• DUBS x Prague

    As I’ve mentioned in a few of my previous blog posts, there’s a lot more to university life than just studying and exams. University societies are a big part of this. Dundee University Business Society (DUBS) decided to start the new year with a bang and arranged the trip of a life time to the […]

  • Healthy Body, Healthy Mind

    So here we are in December already. First thing most people think of when they think of December is probably Christmas.. Food, gifts, family, getting cosy in front of the TV with a hot chocolate maybe? For most students though deadline and exam season comes first and having a double shot flat white in front […]

  • Dundee Bucket List

    As a final year student I’ve spent enough time living in Dundee that I feel I should impart some of my wisdom. Dundee is a great place to be a student – as far as cities go it’s not huge but it does have the largest student population by percentage of any other Scottish city, […]

  • DUBS x DULS x CLIC Sargent

    Who doesn’t love a pub quiz? The perfect way to socialise, show people how clever you are and maybe even win a prize. And a good excuse to get out the library too. The other great thing about a pub quiz is that it’s an excellent way to raise money for charity. With that in […]

  • Life as an Economics with Spanish student

    One of the biggest (and best) differences between school and university learning is the flexibility. Once you start university, mundane awakenings to be met with the same school routine every day become a distant memory. Each day is different – different classes, different times, different people. If I have no early morning classes I tend […]

  • Scottish Graduate Fair 2017

    It’s important to remember that there’s a lot more to University life than just going to classes, studying, and getting through exams. Whether it’s joining a sports team, a society, or becoming a class rep, there’s a lot of extra-curricular activities that you can participate in to enrich your university experience, especially at UoD. It’s […]

  • Open Days at UoD

    For those starting school again for their final year it can be a daunting time. Been turning up to school most mornings for as long as you can remember and now, suddenly, it’s almost over and you think, “What next?” At least, I remember that’s how I felt this time four years ago. One thing […]

  • The Fun of Freshers’ Week

    So summer is almost over and that can only mean one thing – freshers week is just around the corner. Hard to believe it’s going to be my fourth round at one of the biggest weeks on Dundee’s social calendar. For a lot of people who have just left school and got their place at university (congratulations) […]

  • A bit about me

Now going into my fourth year at uni, I moved to Dundee about three years ago, having left school at the […]
