  • So. Many. Deadlines.

    It’s nearing the end of November and that means, at least in the Humanities, that all your deadlines creep up on you at once! We’ve all experienced maybe being a little unprepared for this so here are a few tips on how to avoid it this year. Firstly, always keep track of when all your […]

  • Exploring Dundee

    Dundee is officially promoted as “One City, Many Discoveries,” and since one of my mottos is to make the most of the place I am currently staying in, I took it as a challenge. Here’s a list of cool places I discovered so far:

  • 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, […]

  • 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.

  • 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 […]

  • How to “What Now?”

    We’re halfway through the 3rd week of class and by now I’m sure you have had hundreds of emails from all the clubs and societies that you signed up to during freshers’ week, a bunch of messages from your lecturers telling you about deadlines and room changes, plus the weekly ‘are you okay?’ WhatsApp from […]

  • Open Days!

    Well, UoD undergraduate open days are over again for another semester! I’ve helped out at the History stall for the past two semesters and I absolutely love it. It’s such an amazing opportunity to really sell the university and encourage people to come to Dundee, as well as to take History modules of course! (I’d […]
