It is a good idea to consider the likely temperature and climate in your destination, so that you can take enough (and the right kind of) clothes to be comfortable on arrival.

Have a chat with other students who have been on exchange in the country where you are headed and get their tips on what to pack.

The weight limit for baggage is usually about 20kgs - make sure that you keep some room in your suitcase for all of the fabulous souvenirs that you purchase while on exchange.

Carry your study plan and latest academic transcript

You will also need to carry a copy of your study plan so you know what courses you already have been approved for, and which units may still need approval once you have enrolled overseas.
