Student Life

  • Go for it

    So what has blogging done for me? This year is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this in my life. But for some reason, when I saw on social media they were looking for people to contribute to the Student Blog, I decided to go for it. The piece I submitted for it […]

  • Resitting a Year – Semester 2

    It’s safe to say that this semester has been very different to every other, as (at least on my course), there was no in-person teaching or working at all. Also, I personally was unable to travel to Scotland for 5 months. This meant that I didn’t visit the site for our project until four days […]

  • A Walk up Dundee Law

    This time last year, after being in lockdown and barely going outside for months, I decided I wanted to do something active for a change. One of the places that I’d never been, even though I’d been in Dundee for 3 years, was the Law, which seemed crazy as it’s such a noticeable and important […]

  • Reflection: Civil Engineering through the years and my favourite parts!

    As my time at University comes to an end, I have been reflecting back on the long but short 5 years. I came to University hopeful, excited and a little nervous. Like the majority of students, my biggest fear was that I wouldn’t make friends. That quickly changed of course once I realized all the […]

  • Eating out: Indian restaurants to try

    It’s the 26th and we can finally eat out! I have been craving good Indian food (vegetarian of course) and here are my top 3 Indian restaurants in Dundee. Rishis – its right on Hawkhill, near uni campus. Its honestly so tempting to eat out right after lectures. They have amazing lunch deals, and the […]

  • Spinach Pulao

    As a child, Popeye sailor man was one of my favourite cartoons. Watching him obsess over spinach did become a great advocate for making me eat spinach. However, it was also my mum’s innovative spinach recipes that made this superfood edible. During my easter break MasterChef marathons, I got imaginative and tried making this easy […]

  • 10 More Songs to Help Keep You Motivated

    It can be hard to stay focused on your work during the Easter holidays, with having no contact with tutors. On top of that, it won’t be long (hopefully) until the world will start to get back to normal, we’ve just got one last little push to go. So I’ve compiled 10 more songs that […]

  • Indian yellow lentil dal

    Comfort food at it’s finest and yet filled with protein to make you feel good about it. The yellow split lentil packet at Lidl costing only about 70p, you can make an amazing healthy budget friendly dish. It can be soup or even curry with rice. All you need are 4 ingredients – yellow lentils, […]

  • What I’m missing about Dundee

    Since going back to my hometown for Christmas, I’ve been unable to return to Dundee because of lockdown restrictions. They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, and so I’ve come to realise what I’ve been missing most in the four months I’ve been away. The ArchitectureOf course, being an architecture student, I have a […]

  • How it feels to be finishing uni

    My time at the University of Dundee is unfortunately coming to an end, and it’s such a strange ending to my four years! I thought I’d make a little blog post to share some of my feelings about finishing uni, and hopefully others who are leaving this year will be able to relate. My last […]
