DO NOT OVERPACK! Do not bring a lot of sweatpants or t-shirts—People in London dress nicely on a daily basis, but you still want some comfy clothes for lounging in your flat. When you’re here, you are barely ever at home! There is so much to do. Also, be sure to ask your employer (if you have an internship abroad) or teacher what the expected dress code is. Clothes to pack may vary depending upon where you intern.
