  • When things get hard

    Now that most of us will be in week 6/7 of our courses, I am sure we are all doing our best to keep up with lectures, meeting deadlines and of course managing all the new responsibilities as students away from home. I know I am! This is my 3rd year here in Dundee, but […]

  • My Experience Living in Student Accommodation

    Living in student accommodation is a large part of student life for many. Moving into halls and living with people you have never met before can seem like a terrifying experience. The excitement of living away from home can also come with many worries. For my first year of university, I lived in Heathfield. Heathfield […]

  • Warrior

    It started quite innocently, with feeling empty inside, all the time. Slowly but surely I started abandoning things I used to enjoy, like socialising, cooking and exercising. Instead of flourishing during classes I was withering a little bit more every day.  To put it bluntly, last year was very difficult and talking about it isn’t […]

  • Northern Coastline

    Visiting some amazing points of interest of the north-west Scotland in an epic road-trip.

  • 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 Guide to Studying in University – Part 2

    So, in the previous post I covered the 3 biggest things of studying in Uni, the trifactor of Uni if I may say. But, that is not all that is enough to get you through Uni. Keeping up with lectures, constant revision and regular breaks to ensure you do not burn out so soon is […]

  • 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 […]

  • Student Mental Health and Wellbeing

    As we approach mental health day on October 10th, I thought it would be the perfect time to discuss the importance of wellbeing and mental health at university. Mental health is a growing concern amongst students. Looking after your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Low mental wellbeing can impact many […]

  • The Reality of Moving across the World

    Moving to Uni was probably one of the biggest things I’ve ever done. I grew up in the capital city of New Zealand, half a world away! I was about 14 when I decided I wanted to move to Scotland to come to Uni, and it didn’t take me long to realise Dundee University was […]

  • 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 […]
