5 Top Tips For Living Abroad As An Expat


There’s nothing quite as exciting as packing up your life and buying a one-way ticket to somewhere new and unfamiliar. The prospect of starting a brand new chapter in your life in another part of the world is unlike any other. However, that said, even with the very best preparation, many expats still struggle with their integration into a new place. In a bid to help make things run as smoothly as possible, we’re discussing some of our most helpful tips for living abroad as an expat. You’ll start feeling like one of the locals in no time at all!

1. Learn the language.

If you’re uprooting your life to a country with a different native language to your own, making the effort to at least learn the basics, as well as common sayings and slang, is a no-brainer. Unless you’ve studied the language before, it will be undoubtedly tough, however, you’ll quickly find that the locals will be a lot friendlier if you show an interest in their native tongue, and it will go a very long way in helping to ease everyday interactions.

2. Give yourself time to settle in.

Remember, when you uproot your life to a brand new country, integration isn’t going to happen overnight, and that’s okay. In fact, it’s completely normal. Depending on where you go, you might experience a little bit of culture shock. If so, take the time to observe what’s going on around you and allow yourself time to settle in. You could also use this as the perfect opportunity to say yes to more things, perhaps things that you may not have necessarily been inclined to do at home – you’ll meet a ton of new people. That said, don’t lose yourself in the name of integrating. Don’t hesitate to take it slow if you really need to.

4. Live like a local.

Let’s face it, if you contain yourself to only the big cities and tourist areas, you’re going to miss out on what you new home really has to offer. Make the effort to travel, explore smaller towns, interact with people who don’t meet foreigners very often. You’ll find that by living more like a local, you’ll learn so much more about your new home than you thought.

5. Keep in touch with your loved ones back home.

One of the most important things you can do when you move to a new country is build a supportive network around you, be that colleagues or new friends. However, you certainly shouldn’t neglect your relationships back at home. It’s a no-brainer, but always be sure to put the effort into calling your loved ones back home with Skype or FaceTime, whether it be for a catch up or just to let them know you were thinking about them.

6. Send stuff to and from home with Uni Baggage.

One of the trickiest aspects of living abroad is being able to send things home when you need to, or perhaps have someone from home send something to you. Perhaps one of you loved ones wants to send you a care-package full of home comforts, or perhaps you have to send something important back to your home country. You might even find the need to send something elsewhere in the world – but how exactly can you do it?

Thankfully, Uni Baggage offers an affordable solution. With Uni Baggage, you can ship luggage and parcels to and from over 200 countries worldwide, across over 1,000 routes. We offer a convenient door to door service and super fast shipping times, so you won’t have to wait weeks for your stuff to arrive safely. We offer a generous weight allowance of 30kg/66lbs per suitcase or box, so there’s plenty of space for goodies. Most importantly, our fantastic rates are super low, for example we offer services from the USA to the UK for as little as £82, from Australia for as little as £120, and from Spain for as little as £32.

You can get a quote from Uni Baggage any time, and our online booking system is available 24/7. If you have any questions or concerns, you can have a read through our FAQ section, or you can speak with our support team via telephone, email or live chat.

5 Things You Need To Know If You’re A Frequent Traveller


Leaving home for extended periods of time to travel can be daunting. There’s the packing, the making sure you have all of the correct documents with you, the arranging transport – all to name but a few. Even the most experienced of travellers aren’t immune to bouts of travel stress. In this post, we’re detailing some of the most important things you should know if you travel often, in a bid to curb some of your nagging worries and uncertainties.


1. Back up important documents in electronic form.

When travelling, documents such as your passport, visa, travel insurance, driver’s license, medical records, airline tickets, and hotel reservation confirmations, to name but a few, are all extremely important. Whilst it’s always good to have a printed copy of these documents, you should always consider making electronic back-ups of each so that you know you always have them with you. Scan your documents and store them by emailing them to yourself, by keeping them in the cloud or by storing them on your portable device.

2. Pack smart.

Perhaps one of the most stressful aspects of travelling is packing, and if you’re hoping to travel often, you need to learn how to pack smart. First and foremost, you should invest in some lightweight luggage. Standard suitcases tend to have heavy frames that can account for a surprisingly large chunk of your weight allowance, even when totally empty. A lightweight suitcase, or perhaps even a backpack, allows you to save more of those precious kg for your belongings. Additionally, if you’ve booked a hotel or apartment to stay in, take a look into what might be supplied for your stay. There’s no need to waste luggage space on things like towels and hairdryers if it’s going to be provided when you get there.

3. Apps, apps, apps.

When it comes to travelling, and travelling often, your phone – or perhaps more specifically, the apps you download – will become your saving grace. Thanks to the sheer variety of apps downloadable at your fingertips, travelling has never been easier. There are apps for literally everything, from language translators, to maps, and even apps that can store all of your travel details, such as your flight details, hotel bookings, and more.

4. Plan for the worst case scenario.

When planning a trip, no one likes to think about the worst case scenario – but things can and do happen, and you should prepare yourself for tricky situations. For example, backing up all of your important documents as mentioned previously will prevent the sheer panic that could ensue if your passport falls out of your carry-on bag, or if you misplace your boarding pass. Additionally, don’t forget to call your bank and make them aware of your travel plans. The last thing you want is to be stranded without access to your money.

5. Travel luggage-free with Uni Baggage.

It really goes without saying that travelling long-haul frequently can be nothing short of a nightmare when you have an abundance of luggage in tow. There’s the hauling of suitcases and heavy bags across such a long journey, not to mention the often extortionate excess baggage fees and waiting around at check-in desks and luggage carousels. Thankfully, Uni Baggage provides a welcomed alternative to airline baggage.

Uni Baggage provides a convenient door to door luggage shipping service all over the world. When you ship your belongings to your destination with us, you have the freedom to travel luggage-free, with only your carry-on essentials. We offer a generous weight allowance of up to 30kg/66lb per suitcase or box, so you can even send stuff you may not be able to take on the plane with you. And, most importantly, our services are affordable. We ship across 1,000+ routes worldwide, offering services to the USA from as little as £99, and to Canada for as little as £118.

5 Helpful Tips For Moving Abroad Seamlessly


Each and every year, hundreds of thousands of people decide to relocate to a new country; whether it be for business purposes, to broaden their academic horizons by studying in a university or college overseas, or perhaps to seek a new life for them and their family. Whatever the reason may be, there’s no doubt about it, uprooting your life to a new country can be nothing short of a fulfilling experience. That said, the process of doing so is certainly no easy feat, and even the very thought can be undeniably overwhelming.

In a bid to shed some light on the matter and make your move abroad as seamless as possible, we’re detailing some of the most helpful relocation tips to help you on your way.


1. Organise visas and relevant documentation.

Although it is one of the more laborious processes involved in relocating, sorting your immigration as early as possible should be your top priority. If you hope to live and work on a temporary or permanent basis in your new country, you will need to have the correct visa. Don’t leave it until the last minute – the time it takes for visa applications to process varies country by country, though it some cases it can take 6-8 months, or even a year.

You’ll also want to spend some time organising all other relevant documentation, making sure they are all up to date and accessible. Documents such as your birth certificates, marriage certificates, up to date driving licences/passport/identification, medical records, etc. It’s also worthwhile digitally backing up all of your important documents to be safe.

2. Save up more than enough money.

It really goes without saying that moving abroad can place a hefty financial strain on anybody’s shoulders. As such, you really should strive to exceed your savings and take the time to ensure your finances are in order before your big move overseas. Unexpected, upfront expenses are common when relocating abroad, and the last thing you want is to be unprepared for any immediate setbacks. As well, in the instance that it might take you a little bit longer start earning an income than you hoped, research the cost of living and be sure that you have enough to cover all expenses before you have money coming in.

3. Start looking for accommodation straight away.

Something that should be high on your list of priorities is finding a place to live. Living out of a hotel room when you arrive won’t be ideal for too long – finding a place you can call home will help you to settle in. Start researching online before you go to make the whole process easier when you arrive, and in the meantime, book a short term apartment rental.

4. Have the first step planned before you jump.

Sometimes, spontaneity can get the better of us. And, in some situations, it can be a good thing! But, when it comes to moving abroad, you should have your very first step planned, at least. Perhaps it’s the town or city you’ll stay in whilst looking for work, or what kind of work you’ll be doing. Of course, you can move abroad with many aspects undecided, after all, it’s impossible to know for sure how things will pan out once you get there. That said, planning out at least the basics will make your life much easier, and much less stressful.

5. Carry only the essentials and ship the rest with Uni Baggage.

One of the trickiest things to get your head around when it comes to moving abroad is exactly how to get all of your worldly belongings from point A to point B across the water. Not only is airline baggage expensive, but travelling with all of your belongings in tow is only going to make it that much more difficult. And, while there are a lot of international shipping companies out there, they can be expensive, not to mention a slow process.

Thankfully, Uni Baggage offers a welcomed, affordable alternative. When you ship your personal belongings to your destination with Uni Baggage, you have the freedom to travel light. We offer a convenient door to door service and super fast shipping times, so you won’t have to wait weeks (or worse, months!) for all of your stuff to arrive safely with you. We offer a generous weight allowance of up to 30kg/66lb per suitcase or box, so you can send stuff you may not be able to take on a plane with you. And, most importantly, our rates are super low. We ship to over 200 countries across the world, across 1,000+ routes, offering services to the USA from as little as £99, and to Australia for as little as £162.

You can get a quote from Uni Baggage any time, and our online booking system is available 24/7. If you have any questions or concerns, you can have a read through our FAQ section, or you can speak with our support team via telephone, email or live chat.

6 Things To Remember If You Struggle With Mental Health At University


mental health university

According to mental health charity Mind, 1 in 4 people in the UK suffer from mental health issues every year, with university students in particular being some of the most vulnerable.

There are many reasons as to why this might be the case. There is a sudden lifestyle transition comes with moving to university, where you’re likely living away from home for the first time, surrounded by people you don’t know. This, combined with a plethora of new-found responsibilities such as managing your own finances and effectively managing your time for independent study – can all be extremely overwhelming for any new student.

Your university days are often referred to as some of the best times of your life, yet often the pressure to feel like you’re always enjoying yourself and appreciating every single moment of your time as a student can do nothing but add to the ever-growing problem.

If you, or perhaps even someone you know, is currently struggling with mental health issues at university, here are just a few important things you should always remember.


1. Mental health is just as important as physical health.

It really goes without saying that mental illnesses should be treated just as physical illnesses are. According to research, a truly staggering number of university students do not seek any form of help for their struggles with mental health because they are embarrassed, or because many of them do not believe they are “unwell enough” to do so.

Ignoring or overlooking your mental health for any reason will do nothing but have an even further detrimental effect on your well-being. Doctors and mental health support services are there to help everyone. Just because you do not have any physical ailments does not mean you are not worthy of help when you need it. You matter and you are important.

2. Self-care is just as important as uni work.

Practising self-care is something that is so simple, yet so easy to neglect. Life at university can be incredibly fast paced, with intensive study and deadlines to meet. Whilst striving for excellence in the academic side of university is great – burning the candle at both ends and not taking any time out for yourself can have a drastic effect on your well-being.

As often as you can, take time to care for yourself in whatever way is best for you. Whether it’s taking a night off and binge-watching Netflix with your pals, doing something you love, or practising relaxation techniques such as mindfulness – self-care is necessary.

3. Your university is there to help you.

Thankfully, these days, it is more common than ever for universities to have mental health professionals and support services on hand to provide help for any students who may be struggling. It’s worth investigating exactly what services your university has to offer, as you might find that the waiting times are much shorter than what you might find on the NHS.

Be sure not to overlook your personal tutor, either. It is their job is to be available for your personal well-being, just as much as your academic performance. Reaching out to them could help to alleviate any stresses you might be feeling as a result of your workload.

4. You don’t have to give in to peer pressure.

As fun an experience as university can be, with all of the socialising you’ll do and new experiences you’ll inevitably have – it can become very easy to feel pressured to participate in activities that you don’t necessary want to participate in, perhaps out of FOMO, embarrassment or fear of disappointing other people. Though it can be hard to say no, giving in to peer pressure serves no purpose for your well-being. Real friends will always understand and you will have so many other opportunities to enjoy yourself.

5. It’s a process, and seeking help is the first step.

If you are struggling with your mental health at university, it’s so important to remember that feeling better is a process, and seeking help is the first and most crucial step that you can take. There is no shame in facing the fact that you are not okay, and need support. It is something that will undoubtedly take time, but keep in mind that it will eventually pass.

6. You are not alone.

Perhaps one of the most important things to remember is that you are not alone. As cliché as the phrase may be, it’s true. There are so many others who have faced and who currently face similar struggles on a daily basis, and remembering this small but important detail can help you to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you are feeling low.

6 Study Tips For When You’re Lacking Motivation


Image result for studying gif

Whether you’re writing an essay or studying for an upcoming exam, it can be easy to lose your momentum at university. After all, studying is nothing short of tedious, and the thought of heading down to the pub with your pals is, undoubtedly, far more appealing.

That said, it has to be done – at the end of the day, it’s kinda why you’re at university in the first place. So, if you’re finding that your motivation is currently lacking and at an all-time low, we’ve put together some of our best study tips to help you get back on track.

1. Get rid of distractions.

Image result for distractions gif

First and foremost, the best thing you can do to boost motivation and avoid procrastination is to get rid of any and all distractions whilst you work. Put your phone out of sight, that way, you won’t be tempted to just pick it up and pointlessly scroll. Get rid of anything else that could pull you away in the middle of your work, and you’ll find you’ll work much better.

2. Make a functional to-do list.

Related image

There is nothing worse than looking at your to-do list and having a sinking feeling of total dread – but it certainly doesn’t have to be that way. Only you know how much you are capable of achieving in one day, so be realistic about it. Overloading your list with too many tasks at a time just becomes too overwhelming and, in the end, counter-productive. Instead, create a more functional to-do list, prioritising the most important tasks at the top.

3. Set yourself time brackets.

Image result for looking at watch gif

Working to a set time can be difficult, but you’ll soon find that it’s a great productive habit to get into. Once you’ve put together your to-do list, set yourself time brackets for each individual task. If you’re strict enough with it, it means that you won’t end up getting too sucked up in one task, only to neglect another. Practise makes perfect with this one.

4. Single task.

Confused Spongebob Squarepants GIF

Multi-tasking is a great skill, like for example when you’re cleaning your dorm room and listening to a podcast at the same time. Or like when you eat a snack whilst making a snack. It’s wonderful, right? However, when it comes to work, it’s actually not so great. Sure, completing a bunch of tasks all at the same time sounds like a great idea in theory, but actually executing it is a different story. You’re never going to be working your very best when you’re flitting between tasks and projects. By simply staying dedicated to one single task at a time, it narrows your focus so that you can put your all into that one thing.

5. Implement a rewards system.

Image result for treat yo self gif

If you’re still having a hard time getting through your to-do list, try implementing a rewards system. Any excuse to treat yourself is a good excuse, right? Give yourself something to look forward to once you tick off a task. Whether it be another episode of your current favourite Netflix show or otherwise, some incentivised motivation could work wonders.

6. Change up your scenery.

Image result for researching gif

If all else fails, why not try changing up your scenery? It’s easy to go stir crazy when you’re sitting in your dorm room all day. Try going to the library or grab a table at your favourite coffee shop, put your headphones in, and get to work. You’ll find that something as simple as a change in scenery will get your creative juices flowing in no time at all.

Valentine’s Day…

We’re. So. Over. It.

February 14th, hailed as the most romantic day of the year, rolls around every year, and every single time is greeted with a variation of mixed feelings. Whether you see the heart-shaped holiday as a gigantic marketing ploy, a truly magical day filled with hopeless romance, or just a painful yearly reminder that you’re still extremely single – we’re over it.

Whilst every gooey-eyed, loved up couple hands each other heart-shaped balloons and ventures out for their candlelit dinners, apparently as a mere singleton you’re just supposed to spend the most loved up day of the year in a duvet cocoon, with only your cat for company, and cry about how completely terrible single life is. To that we say – no thank you. So, stop right there. Put that family-sized tub of Ben & Jerry’s back into the freezer and don’t you dare start to wallow. This Valentine’s Day, we’re saying f*ck you to toxic exes, expectations of our love life (thanks, fam) and we’re celebrating INDEPENDENCE. Because let’s face it, single life doesn’t get enough credit. In fact, it can be pretty great.

6 Genuinely Useful CV Tips Every Student Should Know


Image result for rachel green job things gif

Putting together a CV may seem like a daunting and laborious task, but it’s an essential one if you’re applying for jobs, and it really doesn’t have to be quite as bad as it seems.

Having a good CV will hugely increase your changes of getting hired for the role you’re applying for, and in this post we’re laying out some of the best tips to ensure you cover all of the basics and more. With our advice, you’ll be impressing employers in no time…


1. Get the basics right.

Image result for spongebob thinking gif

It really goes without saying, but when it comes to writing up your CV, it’s important to get all of the basics right. That includes spelling, grammar, punctuation and the format of the resume itself. Stay clear of extravagant fonts and bright colours – a clean, stylish and appealing format is the best approach, but nothing too outlandish. Keep it professional!

2. Get to the point.

Image result for researching gif

Recruiters often have to sift through hundreds of resumes for any one job vacancy, and so generally have limited time to spend reading through each one. As such, be sure to get to the point and avoiding waffling for the sake of filling up the page. Recruiters tend to skim through resumes looking for keywords and the most relevant points, so be sure to make these as clear as possible. Recruiters will appreciate you making their job easier for them!

3. Don’t feel the need to list every job you’ve ever had.

Image result for job interview gif

While it is important to list your previous work experience, that babysitting job you had in lower sixth probably isn’t relevant. Carefully consider the previous work experience that you choose to list on your CV, and highlight the ones that are most relevant to the job you are applying for. And remember, listing too many jobs can make you look like you’re always jumping ship – recruiters won’t favour those who can’t seem to hold down a job.

4. Be prepared to give valid reasons for big gaps between jobs.

Image result for i was travelling gif

If you have big gaps between your previous work, perhaps for a gap year or time spent travelling – be prepared to give valid reasons for this during your interview. Gaps between jobs tend to be frowned upon, though can be justified with good reason. Time spent travelling during a gap year could actually help you to land the job thanks to experience.

5. Shape your resume for the job you are applying for.

Image result for researching gif

Reading through the job specification and shaping your resume for the job you are applying for will show that you’ve gone the extra mile in your application. It’ll also make the recruiters job easier – straight away they’ll be able to see if your skill-set fits with the role.

6. Don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through.

Image result for this is me gif

Although it can be difficult to do, you should always try to allow your personality to shine through on your resume. This helps the recruiter determine not only whether you’ll be ideal for the job itself, but also whether you’ll fit into the organisation. One of the best ways to show off your personality is by listing your hobbies and interests towards the end of your resume. Of course, and it goes without saying, keep it profesh and within reason!
