Now that you’ve made it to your dream university abroad, it’s time to make a list of everything you need to learn and buy to make sure you have the best time. So, keep that giant jar of homemade pickles and packets of instant noodles aside for a second and jot down these helpful tips to help you study abroad.
Useful tips if you are going to study in another country
# 1 Don’t try to pack your whole house in a backpack
Sure it would be great to have reminders of home here and there, but always keep in mind that a bigger backpack is never the solution. You will have to buy clothes according to the season and the culture that you will be a part of for the next few years. Looking like a tourist is a big no-no. Therefore, take only the essentials from your wardrobe and remember to keep it in style.
# 2 Make a budget and notes of your expenses
Know your spending capacity for the month and make sure you have a fair estimate of all your expenses. Let’s admit that there could be situations where you can end up with a lot of blurry nights. A little up and down in your budget is fine as long as you don’t spend the last of your lunch money overnight.
# 3 Use your vacation to see the world!
The holidays are a great time to visit all the underrated places you’ve heard of and explore a world never known. Explore all the wonderful places, cuisines, and cultures found around the city.
# 4 Document your time
Keep a journal, blog, or visual documentation of your time abroad (because one day you will want to tell stories). So we’re saying that a camera would be a great investment if you love capturing and storing your experiences (and it will be for your social media too). Plus, it could help you track how things unfolded in a few years.
