Travel Checklist

To make your move to the UK as smooth as possible we would recommend for you to tick off the following travel checklist before arriving to London:

  • Check the current quarantine/COVID requirements on the Government Website
  • Ensure that you have arranged your accommodation
  • Make sure your passport is in date and bring a copy just in case
  • Complete your visa application correctly to get your visa
  • Check your luggage weight against your airline’s allowances
  • Bring original copies (and translations) of relevant certificates and examination results for College registration (if applicable)
  • Check your government’s restrictions on taking money out of the country
  • Make sure you bring with you enough prescribed medicine for the duration of your stay as you might not find them in the UK without a supporting doctor’s note

Here is also a list of useful things to bring with you to the UK:

  • Enrolment documents and accommodation details
  • Credit Card and/or British Pounds (£)
  • Insurance documents (if applicable)
  • Adaptor for non-British plugs (in the UK we use three-pin plugs and the power is 240 volts)
  • Laptop
  • Face covering, hand gel
  • Vaccination Details
