    Hi!

    I'm going to Nottingham Univ. I'll be in Malaysia Campus for the 1st 2yrs and in UK campus for the last 2yrs.

    I'm going for pharmacy!

    I was wondering what I should bring over there? Should I already buy copybooks, files, etc... What kinda clothing?(formal, informal, jeans!!!)- I'm a girl! I'm going to take the plane to go to univ, so I'd better not bring too many stuff! What are the essentials I should bring?

    And do you advise me to have any vaccines done before going there?

    Thanks...

    If you're doing a medical degree, you'll need certain vaccinations, but as far as I can tell, you're not gonna be working with corpses or anything. I'd go for a meningitis vaccine if I were you, that's a nasty disease.

    Dress tends to be very casual- I live in jeans and a hoodie in the winter and jeans or a skirt and t-shirt in the summer. Pretty much everything you need you can get over here- don't bother with paper and pens and all that stuff- why cart it halfway across the world when you don't have to? just bring personal stuff. Everything else you can get here.

    Bring a nice dress with you,a nd one or two nice things for going out, etc, but if you want to, and have the funding, there are plenty of clothes to be had over here!
