We will schedule an induction meeting with you on arrival to go over key points and to answer any questions.
What to bring with you
The UK has a temperate climate which means it gets cool, wet winters and warm, wet summers. Average temperatures in September range from 9˚C to 20˚C, and between 2˚C and 7˚C in January. Please bring with you clothing suitable for most conditions, but check the weather reports before you pack to ensure you have appropriate clothing for the first couple of weeks at least.
Any electrical item will need a 3-pin fused plug to work in the UK. Remember to bring a suitable adaptor for hairdryers, phone/laptop chargers, etc. UK sockets use 240v mains power so please check that your electrical items will work on this voltage. We will need to check your adaptors to make sure these comply with UK safety regulations.
It will be useful to make sure that you have some British Pounds (GBP) with you on arrival to cover any urgent purchases. Please note that the College will be able to provide a letter of introduction so that you can quickly open a UK bank account once term has started.
Medicine and toiletries
Please make sure you have any essential or prescribed medication with you, as well as any of your preferred brand of toiletries.
Bed linen and towels
You will need to supply your own bedding. Alternatively, you can order and pay for bedding prior to your arrival at iQ Hammersmith.
