    Bring lots of tshirts and jeans so you dont have to do laundry any more frequent than once a fortnight.

    Bring whatever you normally wear....

    How much you bring is entirely up to you and how much you'll use your stuff.

    I'm planning on bringing 1 holdall and 1 suitcase, but I haven't started packing yet and I have A LOT of stuff. Also I'm catered so I don't have to bring much cutlery/TV or anything and I can't afford a laptop so it's just pretty much clothes!

    I was reading this thread just out of curiosity and i'm getting really scared...omg, i'm applying this year and i'm not from the uk so i suppose i will go there by plane and send millions of boxes via post or i'll never make it...
