  • Leaving home to go home: Thoughts From a Foreign Student

    For some reason, this take me by surprise every single year: Christmas. I don’t know what it is about the fall semester, but it seems to be flying by at the blink of an eye. Just as we’re all caught up in deadlines, exams and getting used to the days getting so much shorter, it […]

  • My First Week Living In Accommodation

    I have lived in Dundee for most of my life and have always loved living in the city. I have had many opportunities for moving away but always decided against it, this city will always be home for me. I have just moved out of the family home and into student accommodation. I wanted to […]

  • #2018HomeStretch

    It’s been a crazy few weeks with deadlines hitting me left, right and centre, and now revision for exams is taking over, but I managed to find some inspiration for a blog post that won’t just be me banging on about how difficult this time of year is at uni! It’s always good to take […]

  • Weekend at Home

    It was my 20th birthday last weekend so, once all my classes had finished on Friday, my boyfriend and I hopped on the train down south for celebrations! One of my favourite things about going home during term time is getting the chance to chill and completely forget about all your responsibilities at uni. It’s […]

  • 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 […]

  • A day in the life of a Singaporean! – All Scots Weekend 2017!!

  • Spring Has Sprung!

    Spring is a glorious time of year.  The trees are flowering, the flowers are blooming. the sheep have welcomed their adorable little lambs, and a million other reasons.  The only downside is allergies, but thanks to a kindly gentleman inventing Benadryl some 70-odd years ago, many of us can now enjoy it without sneezing our […]

  • Happy Easter!

    Hey there, Welcome to a new blog post! I have never really been too fond of this time of year as it has always been either the build up to exams, the last leg of the school year or the holidays are never quite as exciting as Summer. This is especially key to me as […]

  • Roadtrip Madness.

    Hey there, Welcome to another blog post! As we are now in April, I am beginning to feel the university has definitely gone faster than I ever imagined it would. With all of my essays and assignments submitted all that is left for me finishing 1st year is placement and I couldn’t be more excited […]
