On Campus

  • Best things about living in Dundee

    If you’re new here or if you’re considering coming to Dundee, I’m here to tell you that Dundee is the perfect city to live in as a student, and here’s why: As a predominantly student city, it’s really safe as you’re surrounded by students from both universities. Both campuses are safe and big enough for […]

  • Free Shop

    So you’re moving to a new place. Now what? Hint: You need things.  A lot of things.  Things you probably weren’t aware you were going to need. Things are expensive. Student life is great, but it isn’t always cheap or relatively affordable – especially if you want to eat something other than ramen a few […]

  • The Beast from the East

    On the 26th February to the 4th of March, the UK was gripped by a ‘hysteria from Siberia’. Between UCU Strikes and the snow, any semblance of a normal routine was up in the air, and for some, the university seemed to grind to a standstill. What the extra time during canceled classes did mean, […]

  • My favourite event on campus!

    Holi is by far one of my favourite festivals. Think of it as a massive colour run, with loud music, dancing and just good fun.  Holi is the Indian Festival of Colour, celebrating spring, love and the triumph of good. Linked to multiple stories of Indian mythology, it’s steeped in culture and tradition. Of course, […]

  • Speaking Up

    Recently, a group of classmates and I found that we had some issues with the way one of our modules was running. For a while, we spoke amongst ourselves and discussed our concerns in private, until recently when we met with one of our tutors to talk things through. Now, discussions are underway to run […]

  • Study Spots

    In my two and a half years at University, I’ve found various different places to study. Although I’ve not been very imaginative lately (tending to base myself as close to the hot water tap in the second floor silent section as possible) I thought I’d share some of my favourite study spots from over the […]

Training is usually on Thursdays at 19:30-21:30 and Saturdays at 15:00-17:300 in the ISE. Abilities range from beginner to experienced and you can learn to […]

  • 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 […]
