Diary of a Postgrad Student – Week 1 done

Practicum? Sorted! Signed up and started. Dissertation? Rejections from 4 supervisors so far. Still waiting on a response from my preferred supervisor.

Dundee Day-One

This is a piece I wrote at the end of my first year: It is the 13th of May, 2017. This marks the 202nd day since I first stepped foot in Dundee. The journey was quite long: driving from my home in Lagos, Nigeria to the Muritala Mohammed Airport. I took a 6-hour flight on British Airways — LOS to LHR. Transferred from LHR to EDI.
