Stretching your budget by finding part-time working in Dundee
There's a wonderful student journey waiting for you in Dundee, one that will stay with you for a lifetime, but you might need to find some part-time working to help with the finances. Managing your own budget might seem difficult at first if you're a new student, but you soon get used to the process. If you find a job while you're here, balancing the books will become even simpler.
Whether you're studying at the University of Dundee or Abertay University, you won't be far from the bustling city centre. Here you'll find an enormous collection of bars, cafés, pubs, clubs, burger joints and coffee shops. Many of these places like to employ students because of their flexible availability, so if you're looking for work there's no harm in popping inside and asking.
You'll find a number of employment agencies in and around Dundee, many of which specialise in finding jobs for students. While it's a good idea to call in and register, it's an even better idea to register online in advance of your academic year. This is an extremely busy city, and it's attracting more and more tourists from the UK and around the world every year.
Creating a work-life balance to make the most of your year
No doubt you'll want to make the most of your time in the city and your university experience, but you should still be able to balance part-time working and the enjoyment of student life in Dundee. The boost to your finances will help you to enjoy everything that Dundee has to offer, from nights out with friends to sporting activities and all points in between.
In recent years, a massive regeneration of Dundee's waterfront has turned the city into something of a magnet for visitors. The new Victoria & Albert Museum is the latest in a long line of projects that have given the waterfront area a new lease of life, and of course running these places, not to mention the entertainment and dining establishments that surround them, needs a reliable and readily available workforce.
This is a city that's going places, and you'll be right in the heart of the buzz from the day you first arrive. There are two highly rated universities in Dundee, a number of exceptional museums, art galleries and theatres, plenty of sporting options and a wonderful waterfront. Everything you need for a magnificent student journey is within reach, so be sure to make the most of it.
