My dear friend Welcome to London. This post dedicates to my past horrible experience when I came first time in London. Many reader’s (from Pakistan, Sri lanka, India and Ghana) email to me and asked to post ”what are the initial steps I mean after arrival in London what should I do“. Yes this is a very important question. Now I am going describe it step by step.
First Step: Make sure you have arranged a accommodation from your country for at least one week.
Second Step: Ask to your agent or friends for reciving you at airport. If you first time in London make sure again some one is coming to take way out.
Now take a look mentioned steps again because its very important. Then buy a Oyester travel card from any nearest Tube station. As you are a new international student of course you have to travel different places and that’s why you need it. To know more details about London transport click here.
Making a bank account in London is very easy and tough as well. Actually it depends on different Bank. Basically new international students get to open a student account every bank then after 3 to 6 moths later you can upgrade your bank account. What are the requirements for making a bank account are listed below
- Proof of Address (where do you live in or bank letter from your institute or sometimes they accept NI letter)
- Your passport or valid driving licence
- A valid visa (Minimum 6 months)
Banking is essential for every international student I am giving some bank address here for your convenience, check it out for details
Studying in London is very attractive because of its vibrant culture. It’s a multicultural experience with a student population of 350,000 from 200 countries. I hope this information will help you a lot. Dont forget to subscribe & share it if you like this useful post.
