Checklist for your place of study

Make sure you’ve got everything organized with extra time to spare before you leave home. But before that, you need to look at these checklists for your place of study.

  • Have you got the information on how to get to your university or college from the airport and how much it will cost?
  • Have you informed University or college when you’re likely to arrive?
  • In case if you face any problems during your journey, do you have a 24-hour telephone number
    for someone you can contact at your place of study?

About Medical Records

If you regularly take any medicine and have brought any medication with you in the UK, you’ll need a letter from the doctor translated in English which explains what the medicine is about and what is it for.


Most of the airlines have a restrictive weight or size for luggage. It is better to check before arriving at the airport so that you don’t have to throw your stuff. And there is also a restriction on what you can bring into the UK. You should check before packing the bags.


Always take out travel insurance that covers delays, medical emergencies, and the cost of replacing any belongings if they’re lost during your journey. Don’t forget to take out travel and  medical insurance for the duration of your stay in the UK.


We advise you to bring money that lasts until you’ve opened a bank account in the UK or transferred money into the bank. Although you can bring as much as you want in any form, around £500 is enough. You can bring travelers’ cheques that can be cashed in banks or airports in case if you need extra money.

Clothing and other items

You must bring enough pair of clothes required for your journey to the UK. It is a great idea to bring the national dress with you which you can wear to social events or similar programs or to show people who would like to learn new cultures and ethnic wear about other countries.
