Returning home

If you're returning home after study, there are some steps to consider:

  • Shipping goods back home
  • Getting exam results, which aren't part of your academic qualification, from your institution
  • Claiming the security bond back from your rental accommodation
  • Joining relevant alumni organisations

The University of Newcastle has prepared a guide to returning home for your reference. Click here to view Going Home: A guide for international students returning to their home countries
