Student Life

  • MTB in Scotland

    A few words about cycling around here. 

  • Discovering Dundee

    Coming to Dundee University from Yorkshire, I didn’t really know anything at all about the city or what there was to do. So, after a year of exploring, here’s what I’ve found and what I would recommend: Dundee Contemporary Arts. This wee gallery on Perth Road has frequent new exhibitions (often free!) along with workshops […]

  • My Favourite Things About the Library

    As a history student, I spend a lot of time in the library on campus. I heard this saying once and I’ve always remembered it: the library is our lab. As in, in the School of Humanities, you don’t have timetabled lab sessions, but you do need to spend time outside of class consolidating what […]

  • The Best Years Of Your Life

    “ Your time at University are the best years of your life” I’m sure we have all heard this sentence or a variation of it at some point or another. Over the last couple of years, I’ve struggled to empathise with this phrase and the false promises it suggests. I don’t know how many times […]

  • How to make/save some money as a student

    Moving away from home and having to pay for everything all of a sudden can be a bit of a shock to the system. Even if you get student funding or a scholarship, sometimes it can be difficult to budget so that you’re actually able to save up for the future. However, after two years […]

  • My First Week Living In Accommodation

    I have lived in Dundee for most of my life and have always loved living in the city. I have had many opportunities for moving away but always decided against it, this city will always be home for me. I have just moved out of the family home and into student accommodation. I wanted to […]
