Packing for studying abroad may feel impossible because you’ll need to fit your whole life into a single suitcase. No matter how tough it may seem, things will get pretty easy once you leave everything you don’t need behind, starting with these five items.
Even if your accommodation doesn’t offer sheets, blankets, and pillows, it’s a better idea to buy them once you get there instead of having them take up half of your suitcase.
Textbooks & School Supplies
Another thing that’s best purchased when you reach your destination? Textbooks and school supplies. Your professors will tell you which textbooks you need for your class and all the stationery you need will be available at pretty much every bookstore.
Storage & Decoration
If you want to decorate your room/apartment and give it some personality, you’ll easily find all the decorations you need once you’re there, instead of wasting precious space in your suitcase.
If there are any expensive items that you wouldn’t want to have stolen, lost, or forgotten during your trip abroad, it’s a good idea to just leave them at home.
Tons of Clothes
You’ll find a lot of cute clothes to buy while studying abroad so there’s no need to take the content of your entire closet.
