  • Go for it

    So what has blogging done for me? This year is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this in my life. But for some reason, when I saw on social media they were looking for people to contribute to the Student Blog, I decided to go for it. The piece I submitted for it […]

  • And That’s a Wrap!

    Well that is an end to four years of University in Dundee. Finishing up my degree has made me reflect on my time at University as well as think about the future. It is both daunting and exciting to think about what is ahead. I have been in education my whole life so it can […]

  • Semester Abroad – Travelling

    Completing a semester (or year) abroad provides some excellent opportunities to experience and travel a new country. I did a semester abroad during my second year to Trent University in Canada. Around my studies I was able to fit in a little bit of travelling. I’ve given a taste to some of the areas I […]

  • Resitting a Year – Semester 2

    It’s safe to say that this semester has been very different to every other, as (at least on my course), there was no in-person teaching or working at all.

Time just flew by so fast, I feel like I had no chance to realise what was happening around me. Quarantine definitely had an impact on my life as a student, but Dundee still managed to soften the […]

  • Tips for Managing a Budget at University

    Firstly, this is by no means an extensive list of tips for managing a budget while at University. There are tons of resources, and I am sure from people with much more expertise than myself, out there on how to manage money effectively and advice on creating budgets. However, these are some tips that I […]

  • Part Time Jobs While at University

    Working a part time job while at University can be difficult. It obviously helps if it is a job you enjoy. During my third year, I worked as a waitress at a hotel restaurant, which I loved. I worked mostly breakfast shifts, starting anywhere between 6 – 8:30am and finishing around midday. These were hours […]

  • A Walk up Dundee Law

    This time last year, after being in lockdown and barely going outside for months, I decided I wanted to do something active for a change. One of the places that I’d never been, even though I’d been in Dundee for 3 years, was the Law, which seemed crazy as it’s such a noticeable and important […]
