What to pack

Being organised when you are packing will save you a lot of time and hassle in the new country.

It is also good to know what you need to bring from home, or what you can buy in your new town.

Before you even drag out the suitcase, let’s review this checklist…

Have you ticked all seven boxes? Ok, great. Now let’s get packing.

Some things are best left at home, so to avoid wasting your money or unexpected issues with customs, make sure you don’t pack any of the following.

We hope that this information can answer your question “What need to be packed for studying abroad?” and will be helpful for your new journey at new study destination. If you need any more assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact IDP’s counsellors.
