Before you leave your home country to study as an international student at The University of Nottingham, there are a number of things you must ensure you have done:
If you will be unable to arrive in time for the start date of your course, see our guidance on late arrivals for some important information about arriving late. You must arrive before the final registration deadline and must not travel to the UK if you will be unable to do so.
When you pack for your journey to the UK, think about what you will most need or want to have with you, and make sure you don't end up struggling with more luggage than you can manage. Remember that it will be your responsibility to get your bags from the airport to the University, which may mean getting on and off a coach or train with them, so don't pack more than you can carry.
We advise students travelling internationally not to bring bedding and kitchenware from home as these will take up a lot of space in your luggage and they are things that you can easily buy in Nottingham. If you will stay in campus accommodation, you may be able to purchase bedding packs through the University's online store.
Bring some warm and waterproof clothing for when you arrive, such as a sweater and a light jacket, as it may be much cooler in the UK than at home. It's a good idea to check an online weather forecast for the UK before you travel so you know what kind of weather to expect on arrival.
But don't spend a fortune on bulky winter clothing before travelling – you can find plenty of affordable warm clothing for sale in the UK.
On your departure from your home country to the UK, please ensure you have these items in your hand luggage:
