What to pack

Don’t leave packing to the last minute!  A good idea is to create a list on your phone, or with pen and paper, and check off things as you pack.

On top of basic items for your day-to-day life, you should pack:

  • clothing and footwear for all types of weather - hot and cold.
  • laptop and charger (including adaptors for Australian powerpoints)
  • bilingual dictionary
  • spare glasses or contacts
  • your letter of offer and copies of other important Monash College correspondence
  • A quick reference list of key contact people, emails and phone numbers
  • Copies of your passport, visa, travel insurance and other important documents

Australia is strict about what can be brought into the country. You may have to declare some items (you fill out a form on the plane). Find out more about Australian customs.
