By ChiUni 11 Jul 2018

You've got your place at uni (YAY!) and soon you will be making the move from home to university in the UK! 


But first, have you figured out what you will need to bring with you? 

Here are the things you MUST remember:

  1. Documentation
  2. Money
  3. Laptop 
  4. Medication (you could get this in UK too) - don't forget to register with a UK doctor too.
  5. Photos from home

Most other items can be bought once you arrive:

  • Bedding (pillows, quilt, sheets) 
  • Stationery
  • Warm clothes
  • Towels
  • Toiletries 
  • Sports kit
  • Cleaning items
  • Kitchen utensils 
  • Books
  • Waterproof raincoat, this is Britain after all... 
  • Coffee, tea, mugs, food

There are also things that you CAN'T bring to uni:

  • Rice cookers or chip fryers
  • Candles, incense sticks, tea lights
  • Smoking equipment, such as pipes and ashtrays
  • Dartboards or weapons of any kind (real or replicas - don't bring them)

Time to start packing!
