  • A day in the Life of a BMSc Student

      WED, 1st Nov 2017 The most soul-destroying sound on Earth has to be the default iPhone alarm that greets me every morning at 7am. I go to bed with the best of intentions to have an early night but with my mandatory scroll through Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and endless YouTube spiral (predominantly about food) it […]

  • Diwali @ Dundee

      It all started with a phone call!   It was a regular Tuesday. I had finished my lectures and somehow fell asleep at 6 PM. Perhaps, I was just too tired. And then, that really annoying thing happened. We’ve all experienced it. It doesn’t make it any less annoying. My phone started ringing.   I […]

  • What a week!

    It’s been exhilarating. It’s been exhausting. You know when you begin to set off on a long run and as you slowly gain pace you feel this thrill that you’ve peaked and you’re taking longer and longer strides… Soon the ground begins to disappear beneath your feet, and it’s almost like you’re flying! An hour into […]

  • Tips and Tricks on Making Friends

    We’ve all watched the cast of F.R.I.E.N.D.S – if you haven’t I strongly suggest you do before you continue – pile onto their celebrated couch and envied their friendship. Having a solid group of people to laugh, celebrate (and moan about deadlines) with is a key part of uni life and will get you through […]

  • 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 […]

  • Week 1 in Dundee: Life on the other side of the North Sea

    In what feels like the blink of an eye, Freshers’ week has passed, and real university life has officially kicked off with days full of workshops and lab practicals. Here are some thoughts on the first week. I came to the university with no expectations, but to be fair I was a bit apprehensive about […]

  • Open Days at UoD

    For those starting school again for their final year it can be a daunting time. Been turning up to school most mornings for as long as you can remember and now, suddenly, it’s almost over and you think, “What next?” At least, I remember that’s how I felt this time four years ago. One thing […]

  • 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 […]

  • My top 10 study tips

    My previous post was on de stressing tips, then I thought why not write on how to study better. I am no expert in excelling in tests or examinations, but I thought why not just share what I do, since it did get me here! Tip 1: What is important? Don’t expect to read everything on […]

  • A walk up the Law.

    Hey there, Welcome to another blog post! I want to apologise for not blogging for a while as the start of 2017 has been crazy! I have had the first block of my teaching placement which went incredibly well. During this semester I have not had a lot of time to stop and reflect due […]
