Packing tips: what to bring and essentials to buy

If you are on a budget and you are flying with a cheap airline, the cost of the extra luggage might be a small fortune, therefore it might be smart to stick to the essentials or maybe even start finding a good delivery company that delivers internationally, has good prices and can help you out. This is a list I came up with and wished I planned better before coming to Uni last October:

  1. Including some of the basics, you need to know if your room comes with bed sheets, pillows, a mattress protector, an alarm clock, coat hangers, a laundry basket, maybe even a lamp.I was quite surprised when I did not have a lamp, therefore I had to order one online.
  2. A smart investment might also be a light, high volume suitcase, as most airlines have a weight limit.
  3. Take your laptop, phone and any other devices you need for studying purposes, as well as communication purposes.
  4. Stock up on stationery, as they can be quite expensive in some countries.
  5. Do not forget your ID, passport, birth certificate and/or driving licence
  6. Necessary clothes, sports clothing, pairs of shoes, winter clothing, a swimsuit.
  7. Posters/ photos as most of the accommodation room provide pinboards.
  8. You can post any appliances you need: a straightener, a hair dryer, a flat iron, a small hoover and kitchen essentials: a wok, saucepan, small cutlery set, scissors, plates, bowls, glasses, mugs, flat baking tray and Tupperware.
  9. Do not forget your university admission acceptance letter and your course acceptance letter, as well as your Student ID no.
  10. As for bathroom essentials, you do need towels, medication, supplies, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, make-up, plasters.
