    in order to have a pleasant staying you need all the things that make you feel comfortable and at home. This is mainly everyone's problem. I am not from UK and it was really hard for me to choose what to take because I came by myself in London and I could not carry too heavy luggage. It also depends on your course. What are you studying?

    I made like a 6 page list of what to take, it came in quite handy. It was silly stuff like every single item I needed for my bathroom, kitchen and bedroom (inc. clothes) but I didn't forget anything, just start making a list now of stuff you seem to use everyday at home, then think about things you use every now and again, and then extras you think you might need

    Oh, that's nice. My flatmates are on a photography course as well, but we are at University of Westminster. And they go out to take all kinds of photos all the time. So you need to get prepared for any weather (lots of clothes both warm and light ), I suppose you already have your own camera, if not, you would need one even though the uni supplies you with lots of equipment. you should also follow the media, so start reading newspapers, because you need to be in touch with exhibitions and stuff...
    Obviously you need a Mac/laptop... are you going to live in campus?

    Yes I am, can't believe it finally moving out of home.... about time. I'm gonna be 21 so i'm gonna be a little older than average but it's going to be great.

    Then you'll gonna need your own bed sheets, a pilllow, mugs, glasses, plates, even if you don't cook it's good to have at least a pan, a pot, cutlery, maybe one or more tea towels...

    I'm taking long hair. I've had shoulder length hair and a fringe for too long. By Summer I'm hoping it's mid-back and I have bangs, all ready for university.

    In terms of material goods, all my clothes, ornaments, photos, books, the obligatory kitchen utensils including a blender, towels, bed sheets and I think that's it.

    With a lot of things (kitchen utensils, for example) it may be best to buy them when you're up there. I, like many people, was living with my parents before I went to uni and while they were able to give me some spare plates and cutlery and stuff, there were still a lot of things I needed to buy.

    Books.
    Clothing.
    Toiletries.
    Kitchen equipment.
    Relevant paperwork.
    Bank card/large supply of money.
    Bedding.
    Stationary.


    Beyond that it's optional really. Most people will take a laptop, and other media. I personally took most of what I owned as I didn't have a choice lol.
