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 to make informed and responsible decisions once abroad.
- 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.
