If you ever plan to study abroad, make sure that you are completely prepared for it. It would help you to enjoy your time while studying and staying in a foreign country. There is a checklist of a few things you must consider before leaving your own country so that your stay and studies become an enjoyable experience for you.
First of all, conduct in-depth research about the country you are going to stay and study. You should have complete knowledge about their culture, climatic conditions and a few more things which are essential for your survival.
Most of the universities have concerned departments which specially deal with such inquiries of foreign students. You can get relevant information regarding your studies, stay and climatic conditions by contacting them.
It is the most significant aspect to focus upon while visiting a foreign country. You require more documents for traveling abroad along with the documents submitted to your university. You should check the expiry date of your passport and ensure that it lasts beyond the duration of your course.
You should also apply for the visa at the earliest and for this, you should thoroughly check the requirements of visa for the country you are going to visit.
The students are advised to carry sufficient amount of money to meet their daily requirements in the foreign country. They must also carry an international debit card which can be easily provided by the nationalized banks. It can prove to help make their stay free from any problems.
The students are also advised to make a budget before leaving their home country. It is possible that the value of the foreign currency might not remain the same when they are calculating its value. A slight change in the value of the foreign currency might impact their whole budget, so they should be prepared to deal with such a situation if it arises.
The university can be consulted for assistance regarding accommodation facilities. It is always a good idea to confirm your place of stay before the visit to a foreign country as it would leave with no problems to tackle and you will be able to concentrate fully on your studies.
You should also get yourself registered for an International Student Identity Card (ISIC) so that you can avail discounts on accommodation and other services.
Packing of Bag
The winter season in some of the European and Western countries is harsh as compared to India, so make sure that you carry clothes which are suitable for your destination. You must ensure to take an adapter as electric plugs vary from country to country.
Emergency Contact Numbers
You must also keep a list of emergency contact numbers like police, fire and ambulance so that they can be contacted immediately in case of emergency.
It is always a good idea to gather sufficient information to prepare yourself for all types of circumstances. Still even going through the entire checklist, there would be some unseen situations for which you have to prepare yourself mentally.
All the bestfor the adventures of your new journey!!
