The health and safety of students participating in our study abroad programs is of utmost importance to us. Each program undergoes a risk assessment before being approved and opened to students, and continues to receive indefinite risk management support thereafter. Additionally, we work to ensure students are aware of the potential dangers and risks that may present themselves while overseas and the preventative measures they can take to ensure their health and safety. 

Prior to a student's departure from the U.S., they are required to complete a series of online modules which cover best practices for health and safety while abroad. To ensure students have successfully understood the information presented, they are then asked to pass several brief assessments (quizzes). We also ask them to reference the U.S. Department of State's website and enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.

In the meantime, please see below for more detailed information about our Health Insurance plan, how students can protect their Mental Health while abroad, and what they should do in the case of an Emergency. If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us at 352-273-1539 or sas@ufic.ufl.edu.
