Student Societies

  • Bargain Adventures

    As someone who tries to travel as much as I can, having a budget is integral. I also ignore it a lot, but that’s a separate issue. I was lucky enough to grow up in a fairly transient household, so the idea of moving around is high on my list of priorities, but with the […]

  • Dundee University Archery Club

    If you’ve ever wanted to embrace your inner Robin Hood or ‘shoot for your own hand’ in true Merida style, the Dundee University Archery Society may be the place for you. 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 […]

  • MacLaren on a Munro

    You know that feeling when the mountains are calling and you want to get up at 5 on a Saturday morning to scramble up the side of a mountain through the bog and freeze your fingers off while eating lunch sitting on some frozen stone? No? Just me then? Mountains are magical. I realise they’re […]

  • A day in the life of a Singaporean! – All Scots Weekend 2017!!

    So now that we are in early November, it was time for another Singaporean meetup this time organised by the UKSSC (United Kingdom Singaporean Student Council) and supported by our very own Dundee University Singaporean Society (DUSG). The event was a great success and both societies received praises from so many different sources. All of […]

  • Edinburgh & Photography

    I recently took a trip with the photography society here at Dundee (DUPS) to Edinburgh – what a whirlwind. I think I saw more in two days than some people get to see in a lifetime of living in Edinburgh, but that just be because people who live in a place think they have all […]

  • 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 […]

  • A day in the life of a year 2 Medical student

    Last year, I wrote a post about my day as a year 1 medical student. And from the looks of it, seems like a lot of you enjoyed it and thank you for stopping me in Ninewells to tell me how informative the post was! That’s why I do this. So, to carry on that […]

  • How to make friends: Take 2

    Last year, around this time, I wrote a blog post about how to make friends. It’s been a year since, so I thought let’s review the advice I gave and see how successful I have been in making friends. Ok, so let’s the facts straight: Do I have friends? – Yes Do I have close […]

  • The lead up to the festival of lights!

    If you’ve been exposed to Indian culture you would know our celebrations are often big, colourful and LOUD. This month we will be celebrating the festival of Diwali which has both religious and cultural significance to Indians all around the world. Diwali is known as the festival of lights as it is accompanied by hundreds […]

  • Week 1 in Dundee: Life on the other side of the North Sea

    In what feels like the blink of an eye, Freshers’ week has passed, and real university life has officially kicked off with days full of workshops and lab practicals. Here are some thoughts on the first week. I came to the university with no expectations, but to be fair I was a bit apprehensive about […]
