You’re going to need quite a few clothes to keep you well dressed in your new place of study. You’ll need to also think about the kind of climate that your new home has, if it’s colder you’ll need more warm clothes and coats.
Be sure to pack plenty of underwear and socks, as well as good basics that you can wear every day, in every situation, and with anything. This way, you’ll ensure that you don’t try and pack your whole wardrobe. You can always buy more things when you get there.
Medication and toiletries
Although you will be able to get a lot of these when you arrive, it’ll be handy if you take any medications and toiletries you need with you, just until you get all set up and settled in.
In the case of medication, make sure you bring enough to keep you well for a while, until you sign up for a new doctor in your destination country. Bringing letters and prescriptions form your current doctor or medical practitioner will also be helpful too.
As well as any prescriptions or medical letter, be sure to pack with you any important travel and identity documents with you. Don’t pack these into your hold luggage, as you may struggle if your bag goes missing during your travels.
Always pack important items like documentation in your hand luggage, and keep your bag with you at all times.
You’re going away to study, so you’re going to have to bring the tools you need to actually get the job done. You’ll need to pack your laptop, along with your charger, to get things done. Don’t worry too much about taking stationery with you, as you can more than likely get this when you arrive in your host country.
Whilst this one isn’t a study aid, it could be classed as a study abroad aid, don’t forget to take your camera to capture every moment of your epic journey!
Now you know what to pack when studying abroad, you can spend some time finding your accommodation that you will live in when you get there. Here at Studyflats, we can help. Check out the student accommodation which we have to offer in near your University.
