Health and Safety Abroad
The health and safety of all participants is our first priority. We monitor the locations of our programs on a regular basis. We point students in the direction of various resources so they can assess the current conditions at their destination and make the best plans possible for a healthy and safe experience abroad.
All participants will be enrolled in SUNY approved health insurance through United Health Care. Students who want to arrange for or continue their medical care while they are studying abroad must discuss a treatment plan with their personal physician. Contact UHC with any concerns regarding prescription medications overseas or about whether a particular medication will be available at your destination.
It is advised to familiarize yourself with your destination before travel. Understanding cultural norms, the political system, and current events is crucial. The resources listed below should be reviewed.
