Travel Essentials and Financial Services
Your health and safety during your study abroad experience will depend on the choices and precautions taken prior to, during, and following your time overseas. However, there are no guarantees or absolutes with regard to health and safety in any setting, especially an international one. Before your departure, make sure that you are in good health, have received any immunizations that are required and learned as much as possible about the health and safety conditions in the host country. Many study abroad programs sponsors will require the submission of medical forms about your physical and mental health. You will also be asked to show proof of health and accident insurance or you may be asked to purchase a special policy that covers these areas overseas. Purchasing travel insurance can be an inexpensive way to protect yourself in case of an emergency.
