So get rid of your fears and follow our step by step guide to study abroad!
Choose your destination
Let's start by the basics, what kind of city would you like? A multicultural, vibrant city like London to live in the middle of the action or you would prefer a quieter city such as Valencia where you can enjoy the good weather and the beach. Think about what you like to do in your free time and where you enjoy traveling and you will find your new home country.
Choose your neighbourhood
One of the biggest challenges of moving to a new city is that you don't know anything about it and probably you don't have the time to get to know it well before you find your apartment. So, research online, there are many blogs of people living there that can give you a local point of view. Where do students live? Is it a safe area? Is it close to my university? And to the city centre? These are just some of the questions that you should ask yourself before starting to look for accommodation.
What type of accommodation would you like?
Student hall, host family, shared flat or a complete apartment for yourself. They are all great options but depending on your personality you will feel more comfortable in one than another. For instance, some people like to be able to share their day with friends when they get home so a shared apartment or a student hall would be perfect for them. Others prefer to be more independent, so a complete apartment would suit them more.

Pack your life in one luggage
We all know this is the most difficult part, especially for girls. How can I pack my whole guard rob in one luggage? Actually you can't, it is totally impossible so be practical. You probably won't need your beach clothes in London as much as you don't need skiing clothes in Valencia.Stop to think in what if… and start to be practical. You will realize that material things are not as necessary as we tend to think and you can live happily without all these things.
So, are you ready? Your adventure starts here. An adventure that will change the way that you see the world and will prepare you for all the future challenges that you will face in life. So congratulations and... Have a blast!
