Studying abroad can be one of the most powerful and transformational experiences in a young person’s life, so when you prepare to go to university in another country, you’ll need to make sure you prepare yourself for success. You’ll want to be certain that you’ve packed your favourite clothes, most important keepsakes and necessary tools—but where you end up is just as meaningful as what you bring with you, so you’ll also want to ensure that you’ve chosen a suitable place to stay during the duration of your schooling.
