  • Break the Ice with some Coffee

    I arrived in Dundee on 20th of September, 2019 to study my post-graduate studies. Prior to this, I had been informed that the people in Dundee are very friendly. Well, I can attest and say that indeed I had a very warm reception as an international student from Kenya. It was rather easy to make […]

  • Weeks One and Two Round Up

    Weeks one and two seemed to be over in a flash! I can’t believe week three of classes is already fast approaching. I thought I’d do a quick realistic review of my first two weeks. Firstly, on the weekend of freshers fair i.e. right before classes started, I finally got a part time job here […]

  • What Happens In Halls…

    I can’t believe I’m about to start my third year at Dundee and therefore it has been two years since I moved into Belmont Flats! I, like many other freshers, spent my first year at uni living in halls and I thought it would be interesting to share some of my experiences and other stories […]

  • University Open Day Tips

    At the end of the month I’ll be helping out in my first open day of 2019 and I can’t wait! I’ve been helping out as a history ambassador for almost a year now and I love it. The best part is definitely meeting the prospective students and their families, and being able to help […]

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. […]

  • Friendship at Uni

    My first two weeks at Dundee have felt like starting a new school, having to introduce myself so often and start afresh with new people that I’ve never met before. So, after two weeks of practice, here are some of my tips on how to break the ice when making new friends at uni! I […]

  • Something About Me

    Ok, first blog posts are always difficult to write when you’re not sure about which direction your taking your posts, but I have to start somewhere, so I’ll start by introducing myself. I’m Katie Rebecca Whitham and I applied to Dundee University to do Education MA two years ago (wow, is it really that long […]

  • Matriculating Late……Settling in…

    A month ago when most other people where busy packing bags, trying to set everything and saying goodbyes to their families, I was doing nothing but  sitting and staring at the walls. There was some complication with my visa process therefore I had to stay back home for a while. I had heard so much about the […]

  • 100 Awkward Conversations

    “Hi, what’s your name? What are you studying?” As someone who is staying at home for university, my main concern was making friends. People who stay in halls are almost guaranteed an immediate social circle to call themselves a member of: a group of strangers are thrown into a flat together, and told to survive. […]
