- Notify people about your departure (e.g. College, Faculty, doctor, dentist)
- Arrange redirection of your mail
If you are returning to your home country or relocating, you will need to:
- Consider how to move your goods; does your airline impose any weight or size limits; who will you use, what services do they offer, what are their insurance arrangements
- Consider whether you can pass on any items to colleagues or charity shops
- Book your travel, to obtain best deal
- Find new accommodation
You should also prepare yourself to readjust to your new surroundings. Even if you are returning to your home country it is not unusual to find you need time to adjust.
