If you are returning to your home country, you should start making the arrangements as early as possible. Remember that in your last months in LPU, examinations or finishing other work will take up a large part of your time, so planning for your departure should begin early.
Following are some practical things to be taken care of:
To get the cheapest tickets, you have to book early, at least several weeks in advance. You can often find very cheap tickets on the Internet, on the websites of either travel companies or the airlines themselves.
Sending your belongings home
If you have been in the India for a long time, you probably have more things now that you could carry on a plane or other form of transport. Check with the travel agent or airline about weight or size limits for luggage. Paying for excess luggage on the plane can be very expensive. Sending it by ship or by rail is often cheaper, but be careful to choose a company which has a good reputation and is reliable. Check if the price includes insurance to cover any loss or breakages. If you have items you do not need or do not want to take home, such as furniture, textbooks, a computer, etc., you could sell these to other students, or in the local dealers; or give them in charity.
Notification of your departure
To help you in your professional life back in your home country, it can be very helpful to have references from LPU, India. At least a month before you leave, contact a few people who can comment on your abilities and your work (such as an academic supervisor or employer) and ask them for a written reference.
What else do I need to think about?
Before you came to the India, you probably expected that you would need time to get used to the language, the different foods, the weather and new ways of doing things. Many students are surprised to find that they also need a period of adjustment when they return to their home country. Although you may think that it will be easy to go back to familiar relationships and patterns of behaviour, you may have some difficulty settling back in and need time to adjust.
