As this is your last day of the guide we thought it would be a good idea to revisit the map some of you posted to on Day 1. What an amazing range of locations our students come from to study here at Dundee! You can open a list of the countries represented using the Preview icon at the bottom right of the map. If you've not already added your pin, now's your chance to do so!
Celebrate the end of isolation with a nice meal
Why not celebrate being out of self-isolation by having a dinner party with your flatmates? Dress up, make mocktails or cocktails and cook some good food together!
Safety on Campus
This is a great video to watch if you will be studying in the School of Science and Engineering, but other buildings will have similar precautions in place.
The Associate Dean of Learning and Teaching, Karen Petrie, made this video on her first day back on campus for Semester 1. It shows what safety measures are in place for you in the buildings, classrooms and labs of the Fulton, Harris and Queen Mother Buildings. Other buildings will have very similar layouts now.
Although you might not be able to visit all these place yet LEARN Smart will give you an insight into our Campuses.

Dundee has lots of statues, from traditional Victorian bronzes to very modern works of art, celebrating the people, culture and history of Dundee. There are many within walking distance of the City Campus that you will be able to visit when your self-isolation is complete.
Matthew Jarron, the Curator of Museums Services at the University, wrote this article about them.
Listen to the sculptor Alyson Conway talking about her tribute to the iconic computer game 'Lemmings'. If you walk down in the direction of the river from the DUSA building you can see this on the other side of Perth Road.
Who are you now?
Now you have reached the last day of the guide why not do the personalities quiz again and compare your results with Day 1, or do it for the first time now.
This quiz measures four different aspects of your personality and generates a personality profile based on the Myers-Briggs personality types. The quiz won't get everything right, of course, but it can act as a springboard for deeper self-reflection.
If you're after something a bit more light-hearted look back at Day 1, Who am I?, for links to other quizzes.
Living or working with others
Living with other people can often be challenging and so can working with other people.
During your studies you will be expected to work with your peers to carry out group work. Doing this doesn't always come naturally but these are academic, employability and life skills you will need to develop.
Dr Meredith Belbin and his team categorised 9 clusters of behaviour, called Belbin's Team Roles, that can help you to understand people's differences and how to work together.
