His Study Abroad Clothes Packing List
Before we talk about a study abroad packing list for male students, whatever the gender, the golden rule is to travel light. List everything you think you will need in your host country. Then, eliminate the items you can buy easily. Our blog on smart travel tips and what NOT to pack is a good place to start for this. His packing list covers all the clothing needs for a male international student’s trip abroad. Here’s everything in the way of clothing you could possibly want or need when you study/travel abroad. Use your discretion as to what of these items may not be appropriate (for example, forget about the warm coats if you are going to be studying in Florida in July), but at least this list ensures that there is nothing vital that you will forget to pack.
