• Thought to share something…

    Hi everyone, I was keen to post something this weekend. Just few lines… I have been dwelling here nearly for a month, more accurately it was an entire month yesterday.  Furthermore, it was notable day because I have been offered with a job. Luckily, I can start it with the University. I am really looking […]

  • It’s all Seeming so Real…

    Hi guys, Ellis here again 🙂   Has it really been a week since my last post? Wow that feels like the shortest space of time ever, it’s completely flown in. Here’s hoping the next week will be just as quick because my move-in date is now one week today! I am so excited. I […]

  • Home Sweet (New) Home

    Moving to Dundee this year, I had a decision to make.  Where to live?  With my parents living twenty minutes from Dundee, I could have easily moved back in with them.  But after four years of independent living, working to my own timetable, eating when I want, and not feeling bad about getting home noisily […]

  • Anybody else hates packing?

    I do! Doesn’t matter if I’m travelling to another country on a holiday or just to the other end of the country, I don’t like packing. Probably because I’m not sure on what to take or even how to pack. I wish I had one of those powers where you swing a wand or just […]

  • Taking to the skies

    Whilst I’m not technically an international student, having lived abroad for the last 13 or so years, I do sort of feel like one, albeit with the advantage that English is my mother tongue, and a greater familiarity with the UK than your average foreign student. As a mature student who’s moving to Dundee permanently […]


  • Packing Guide

    I promised to post a packing guide so with about 10 days to go here it goes! I hope someone will find this helpful. 🙂 First and probably the most important thing is DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. Leaving packing for the last day is a very bad idea. Trust me I know, I’ve done it before […]

  • Preparations…

    Hi everyone, I think some of you who has not yet arrived in Dundee – but about to commence their adventure – might need advice about what things should be done. Once you received the unconditional offer of your application – beside the fact that you are very happy – you can start to prepare […]

  • Dundee on the WordPress Express

    I’m Mattie and I’m starting my MA geography degree in three weeks. I love going to new places and pushing myself to the limit, which is why I’m moving my whole life right to the OTHER SIDE     of Dundee, to stay in the halls of residence. I obviously could have stayed at home, […]

  • Hello!

    New city.  New friends.  New life.  Didn’t I do this already four years ago?! Hi, I’m Kirsten.  I’m returning to the Dundee area after four years at the University of Glasgow, where I got myself a very nice MA Joint Honours Degree in English Literature and History.  I’ll be clinging desperately to student life here […]

  • Testing, Testing, 1, 2…

    Hi everybody 🙂 Well I thought I’d give this a try and get started on my new past-time as University of Dundee student blogger. Now that I’ve started I have a case of writer’s block. Hmm. I guess I’ll tell you a little bit about myself, starting with the basics: My name is Ellis and […]
