Settling In

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Beyond the books: The diary of a coffee addict in Dundee

    Suffering from caffeine withdrawal? Me too. All. The. Time. However, I am not just your usual coffee addict. I like my daily coffee with a side of hipstery scenery and nice staff. During my last 3 years in Dundee I have found the very best, cutest and most aesthetic places to grab a coffee – […]

  • Staying Safe on Campus and in the City

    As someone who had never lived in the centre of a city before moving here, I had some questions and concerns relating to my personal safety before I moved here. People I knew were telling me to “avoid walking home alone” and to “walk through the more populated streets if you have to walk home […]

  • Love the Uni Life

    University can be, and should be, an amazing, enjoyable experience. Here’s my take on how to make it happen.

  • A Very Busy Week 1!

    Finally, the weekend is upon us after what has probably been quite a busy first week of lectures and classes for us all! As a second year history student, my timetable is still relatively busy but nothing quite like you medics and dentists out there working 9-5! Despite that, I thought I’d give a little […]

  • Best Freshers Advice!!!

    Freshers’ Week is almost over, but we can’t forget one of the most important events of the whole week…the Freshers Fayre! On Saturday 8th September, freshers will flock to the campus green to get a glimpse of the many societies we have here at Dundee. ‘So, what’s the best freshers advice?’ I hear you ask. […]

  • Summer Part One (London)

    2017/2018 was a pretty long academic year and to be very honest I was quite ready for a long break. Somehow my long summer became quite exciting, more by a happy accident than by design. This will be a three-part post of my adventures and misadventures…   After I submitted my dissertation, something new I […]
