About Health & Safety

AUK considers the health and safety of its participants in international programs to be one of its top priorities, as the ability to remain healthy and safe while overseas is paramount to a successful overseas experience. While no organization or institution can guarantee the safety of participants, the risks can be significantly reduced if students plan ahead, work with the available resources, and use sound judgment.  Students will be in a new culture with different customs, laws, and societal norms that can limit adjustment and compromise ones well-being if not cautious. Learn as much as you can about the history, culture, politics and customs of your host country prior to your arrival to make the most of the experience.

Travel in itself is not inherently dangerous; however, it is important to realize that no matter where one goes they could potentially be a target of a crime or other dangerous activity.  A reasonable amount of precaution is important. The following information is to help guide you in preparation for potential issues one might encounter while abroad. 

Note: AUK students must follow the AUK Student Code of Conduct while on university activities and programs, including study abroad and student exchanges.
