Once you have planned to study a program in the foreign university of the particular choice, you need to follow the study abroad checklist
Below mentioned are the study abroad checklist details
Of course no one is going to forget the passport. But what you may need to ensure in the run up to your study abroad program is whether your passport will remain valid for the duration of your travels.
Many countries in visa application and such will require you to have at least 6 months extra on your passport beyond the end of your studies, so make sure you allow for study time, any additional travelling time plus an additional 6 months.
If you do need to renew the passport make sure you apply as soon as possible to avoid being without a passport come start of term. Processing times vary from country to country but can often take 6 weeks or more than that.
If you wait until you are in abroad before renewing the passport you’ll have to face embassy visits, queuing and even more form-filling than usual – the last things you want when in an exciting new country!
