Health and Safety

The best way to achieve a healthy and safe study abroad experience is to inform yourself about basic health and safety issues before leaving the U.S. and make informed and responsible decisions once abroad.

You should:

  • Carefully read all pre-departure materials.
  • Register your trip with the US Department of State.
  • Review State Department health and safety information for your specific country.
  • Become familiar with on-site emergency contacts and plans.
  • Stay abreast of local developments.
