I'm Greta and I'm starting English Literature and Film Studies in September. As I'm from Venice, I know (and understand) little about how scottish unis work. I'd be really grateful if you helped me resolving some doubts.
1. Do you suggest me booking a room now using internet or should I come to Dundee at the beginning of September, stay in a hostel and look for a room to rent then? I'm not staying in the university halls because rooms are too expensive, so I'd like to share a flat. I'm afraid that when I come in September most of the rooms will be taken and I'd have little choice, but I don't like booking a room on the internet without seeing it.
2. When do I choose the courses I'll attend? And is attending lectures compulsory?
3. Does a theatre group of the university exist?
4. What exactly is Freshers Week?
I hope my questions aren't too many!
