UBC’s Student Safety Abroad Program supports safe experiences abroad.
This is done by:
- offering advice for assessing and mitigating risks,
- making it easier for UBC to assist you if you encounter critical incidents,
- if you’re intending to go to locations with increased travel warnings, offering a clear and simple process for adjudicating your travel proposals,
- if you’re intending to go to locations with increased travel warnings, providing tools to prepare you for regional hazards.
If you’re traveling outside of Canada for university activity – including conferences, research, volunteering, service learning, varsity sports, and studying abroad – you need to connect with Safety Abroad.
In most cases, you will be travelling to regions where all you will need to do is register your travel details, emergency contacts, and review pre-departure materials to prepare you for a safe journey.
However, if you’re traveling to a location with an increased travel warning, you will need to get permission to travel and undertake additional preparation for risks associated with your location.
