  • Best things about living in Dundee

    If you’re new here or if you’re considering coming to Dundee, I’m here to tell you that Dundee is the perfect city to live in as a student, and here’s why: As a predominantly student city, it’s really safe as you’re surrounded by students from both universities. Both campuses are safe and big enough for […]

  • Why Dundee?

    Dundee is definitely one of the smaller, more student friendly Scottish cities. It may take a little while to grow on you but I’m so glad I’ve gotten to spend my university days here. Everything in Dundee, is ridiculously close. This means you’ll be able to get from one end of town to the other […]

  • The Beast from the East

    On the 26th February to the 4th of March, the UK was gripped by a ‘hysteria from Siberia’. Between UCU Strikes and the snow, any semblance of a normal routine was up in the air, and for some, the university seemed to grind to a standstill. What the extra time during canceled classes did mean, […]

  • My favourite places to eat and drink in Dundee

    As I’ve lived in Dundee for 6 months now, I’d love to share some of my favourite places to eat and drink here! There are plenty of different places to eat and drink, all with different price ranges, which is very handy for us students who often have to stick to a budget but maybe […]

  • The ULTIMATE foodie guide to Dundee.

    I’m unashamedly a self-confessed foodie.  I love trying out new eateries and researching recipes. As far as I’m concerned there’s nothing that a hearty meal (or a late-night Dominos) can’t fix, and it’s even better when it looks so good its Instagram worthy. We’ve all been guilty of taking a quick snap of a particularly […]

  • Feed Me

    If someone ever tells you that food is boring, slowly walk away. They can sense fear. Dundee offers a lot of different cuisine, but it’s taken me some adventuring around to find the stuff I really liked. When you move to a new country, it’s always the food that can make or break your experiences, […]

  • Train tripping: what you should do this weekend

      What is up with this month? Where have all the past 23 days gone? I remember January lasting for what felt like half a year, then at some point February began and went by in a sneeze (kind of literally because everybody seems to have a cold). But it’s over! The days are getting longer, […]

The process was incredibly easy and I’d like to share my experience to help anyone else thinking about renting a student flat or wondering what it’s like trying to rent a flat in Dundee. Firstly, there are plenty of letting […]

  • My favourite event on campus!

    Holi is by far one of my favourite festivals. Think of it as a massive colour run, with loud music, dancing and just good fun.  Holi is the Indian Festival of Colour, celebrating spring, love and the triumph of good. Linked to multiple stories of Indian mythology, it’s steeped in culture and tradition. Of course, […]

  • Chinese New year 2018

    I don’t know what you guys did past weekend, but the Dundee Singapore Society celebrated Chinese New Year 2018 with a grand feast and an awesome show! For those who came I hope the event was as fun as it was for us to organize it for you all. And for those might missed it, […]
