Student Safety Abroad
An increasing number of UBC students undertake international travel for the purpose of study, research, work, volunteer and service learning as part of the UBC experience. Such activities can expose students to certain health and safety risks.
Policy 69, Student Safety Abroad, sets out a process for approving international student travel for university activities. Its purpose is to enable student travelers to be informed of and manage the risks associated with travelling abroad, and to help the University respond to emergency situations in areas to which UBC students have travelled.
If you are working with a student that will be travelling internationally on university activity encourage them to review the Student Safety Abroad website for information to help plan for a safe trip and access the mandatory Student Safety Abroad Registry.
If you have any questions about the policy and student support or would like to schedule a group safety brief, please contact the Student Safety Abroad Advisor.
