What should I pack for my exchange year?

Remember not to pack too much. You'll want to buy clothes and other things once you're at your destination. But some things are still good to bring along.

  • Phone and perhaps a camera
  • Laptop and charger.
  • Adaptor if your host country does not have the same power sockets as your home country.
  • Medicines.
  • Hygiene items for the first period of time.
  • Do you wear glasses? Bring an extra pair!
  • Clothes to start with. Are you going to wear a uniform at school, or do they have other dress codes you need to follow?
  • Ask your host family for advice!
