Things to bring
So, what should you bring to study in Australia? Here are some items for your reference:
– Air tickets and passports are your entry tickets to enter Australia, you must carry them with you.
– Documents required by the school: passport and visa, ID card, offer and electronic confirmation of registration (eCOE), various remittance receipts, IELTS transcripts, notarized materials, multiple ID photos.
2. Clothing and other daily necessities
Australia’s climate is milder than in Europe or the Americas, and light clothing is generally required in summer, although a jacket or sweater is sometimes required at night. In southern Australia, thicker clothing such as a coat or jacket is required in winter. Australian underwear and socks are more expensive, so it is recommended to bring more. In addition, most of Australia is near the sea, and there are many water sports. It is recommended to bring swimsuits.
– Daily necessities
Daily necessities like nail clippers, sewing boxes, chopsticks and spoons can be brought as it is inconvenient and expensive to buy in Australia. You can bring several sets of toothbrushes and toothpaste for washing, but not shampoo and shower gel. You can bring two bottles of your favorite brand of sunscreen.
It is recommended to bring more cold, gastrointestinal, oral, anti-inflammatory and external medicines. These medicines are more expensive in Australia, especially those related to glasses and teeth. You can also bring some vitamins. The medicines you bring should have English instructions, and the outer packaging must be kept. Also, never bring Chinese herbal medicine.
4. Electronic products and stationery
The most important thing when going abroad is to bring a socket converter, and if necessary, you can bring a charger and a battery, because these things are very expensive in Australia, and the model is not necessarily suitable. Computers, digital cameras, MP3s, and electronic dictionaries are generally required, but be careful not to bring pirated CDs.
Stationery such as pencils, refills, water pens and highlighters should be brought with you, since they are also expensive in Australia. You can also carry staplers and hole punches, but you don’t need to carry a lot of books, otherwise the luggage will become very heavy.
