FIRST STEP IS PACKING !
I know students want a detailed packing list, and we all get annoyed when someone says “its common sense”. So I’ve put together everything I thought you could possibly want or need when you study/travel abroad, keeping in mind both guys and girls. I wouldn’t expect you to pack everything I’ve listed, so use your own discretion. . Feel free to print out both posts and use them as your complete guide on how to pack when you’re studying abroad. As for now, here is my version of the ultimate study abroad packing list!
- Underwear (two weeks’ worth)
- Socks (two weeks’ worth plus a pair or two of wool socks)
- Thermal underwear
- Long sleeve shirts
- Short sleeve shirts
- Sweatshirt/ hoodie (2-3)
- Jeans/ Khakis (2-3 pair)
- A belt or two
- Skirts (for the girls)
- A set or two of workout clothes
- Swimsuit (for those going to warmer climates)
- Coat/Jacket (I recommend at least 2 – one for cold weather, and one that is water resistant)
- At least one nice outfit for formal occasions*
- Flip flops/ sandals of some sort (good if you’re going to a warm climate, but also good for hostel showers)
- Sneakers/ dress shoes/ boots/ rain boots*
- Cold weather gear (i.e. gloves/ mittens, hat, scarf)
Budapest Airport ( Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport)
Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, formerly known as Budapest Ferihegy International Airport and still commonly called just Ferihegy, is the international airport serving the Hungarian capital.
It is a fairly small size Airport. Be sure that you will find your way out of the airport easily.

This is only if you decide to discover the city by your own from the beginning.
From the Kőbánya-Kispest metro terminal, passengers can take the M3 metro towards Újpest Központ to reach the city center. It is possible to change to metro lines M1 and M2 at the Deák Ferenc tér stop in the inner city.
