  • Trips around Scotland

    Trip to Edinburgh/Aberdeen With Dundee only being about an hour away from both Aberdeen and Edinburgh, that makes day trips to two very different cities very possible. Something which I do regularly, almost every week! I got a railcard with my Santander student Account, which means this trip only costs 20 pounds return! View from […]

  • Thinking About Studying Abroad?

    I am currently on track to be studying abroad next semester in Perth, Western Australia and I wanted to give a small overview about how I have found the application process for anyone thinking of applying too!

Something which strikes me the most is the amount of children’s toys that […]

  • How I Got a Paid Internship After First-Year

With the help of the Careers Service and quite a lot of free time, my application process started. I must admit, I started quite late as application season starts in September and this was December.

  • 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 […]

  • Discovering the UK- Part 2

    Over the past 6 weeks while I have been interning at Life Sciences research labs, I have tried to make the most of my weekends and try to explore more of the UK. So, my next stop was London. I had never been to England before this, so naturally you can imagine how excited I […]
