Your Study Abroad Checklist

By Funmilayo Ogunsanwo on 17-Dec-2020


1. Get All Necessary Document

You will be required to print out the original copies of your admission letter, scholarship offer letter, certificate of eligibility, proof of funds. standardized tests e.t.c. Make sure to pack these in a file while you’re packing your bag, you should also make up a list of documents you’ve received and submitted to the school to guide you and help you notice when something is missing.


2. Get Insurance

You might be wondering what you need insurance for, most schools abroad request you have health insurance or get anything you own insured. This service is essential to help you enjoy your stay abroad, you should begin to make research about insurance companies in the country you’re going to and their various insurance plans. Once you’ve done this and gotten your health insurance, you are almost ready to travel for your study 


3. Search out connections

The purpose of this is to help give you a sense of belonging, once you have been offered admission and given a school email, you should check out all those that the department head sends mails. Most times, they send group emails so you should check the mail address of other students and begin to network with them. Networking and setting connections make it easier for you to understand the city and how things work


4. Student Bank Account

This is the most important of all!! If you cannot open a bank account from your home country, make sure you do so immediately you get to your country of study. You would definitely need to keep your money and receive money from anywhere in the world, and the easiest means is the bank. This is not an option but a necessity.  


5. The law of your country of study

It is important that you know the laws of the country you are going to avoid unnecessary issues. Know what a nonimmigrant shouldn’t do and abide by them. Breaking of any of these laws could lead to a deportation or a permanent ban. Knowing the laws also helps you understand your rights. So if I were you, I would begin to make these searches.


6. Adequate information about the country of study

You need to acquire information about the state to understand their culture and traditions. how they treat people, what they see as normal, and what is not normal. If you’re looking at staying back in the country after your education, you should find out the percentage of international students that get jobs and the plans these companies have for them.
