  • Beyond the books: How to stay fit in uni!

    Staying fit and healthy in university is a challenge – there are more distractions than ever before, including late nights in the union (I mean the library!) and more pints than I could have ever imagined. But keeping your body healthy is essential – trust me when I say, a happy body makes everything easier, […]

  • 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 […]

  • A date at Italian Grill

    There comes a point in life where most of us realise it’s your friends that eventually have your back and it’s the dinner dates with your girlfriends that make the most memorable nights.  Cue Simran, one of my closest (craziest) friends in Dee and my dinner date for Saturday. We decided to head to Dundee’s […]

  • 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 […]

  • Beyond the books: The diary of a coffee addict in Dundee

  • Staying Safe on Campus and in the City

    As someone who had never lived in the centre of a city before moving here, I had some questions and concerns relating to my personal safety before I moved here.

  • Love the Uni Life

    University can be, and should be, an amazing, enjoyable experience. Here’s my take on how to make it happen.

  • Campus Couches

    The academic success can be difficult to achieve in a distress state of mind. The University of Dundee has loads of support services to help with mental health, finances and such, but to maintain a good feel through students’ courses, it is also crucial to have an environment which is comfortable and inspiring. Such as […]

  • Year 1, Semester 1, Week 1!

    Sunny blue sky, great weather and great people; all are which makes Dundee an ideal place for students to be! As a year 3 student this year, I have already been in classes for the past 3 weeks and trying to understand neurology. But enough about me, this week is all about the freshies and […]

  • Graduation and Highlands trip

    My BMSc graduation was at 2.30pm on the 22nd of June 2018.  The Scottish weather gods were especially kind as the clouds parted and we had sunny skies for the ceremony and the many (many) photos after. This was especially special as my parents had flown in a long way away from Malaysia to attend. […]
