Student societies are groups of like-minded students who aim to promote an activity or cause on campus. It is also the one of the best ways to make new friends, and make the most out of your university life. Trying a new sport or hobby is a perfect break from the academic pattern of student life.
Students on medications or those that have pre-existing medical conditions: If you need a prescribed medication on an ongoing basis make sure that you have brought sufficient quantities with you, at least 4 weeks supply, which will be enough until you register with a local doctor in Dundee.
If you are an international student and require prescribed medication for a pre-existing medical condition, it is important that you bring a doctor's letter (in English) with you to give to the doctor in Dundee explaining your medical diagnosis / condition, and any prescribed medications you require to continue taking.
If you do not do this it may take some time to get a required prescription from the GP (General Practitioner - doctor) in Dundee and this may result in a gap in medication which may affect your ability to study.
Conversation Cafe is an informal weekly meeting where international students can come and practice speaking conversational English speaking skills and improve their understanding of the English language.
