Your Health, Safety, and Well-Being Abroad 

We place the utmost importance on the safety, security, and well-being of students who participate in study abroad programs. Yale maintains an International Travel Policy that outlines the University's stance on restricted travel and also provides a Global Travel Assistance plan to all Yale College students. Additionally, Yale Study Abroad monitors daily the security situation worldwide.

You must take personal responsibility for your own health, safety, and well-being while abroad, but you are not alone. Yale Study Abroad remains a resource to students before, during, and after their time abroad. While no one can guarantee your health, safety, or well-being—at home, at Yale, or abroad—you can take proactive steps to mitigate risks and make the most of your experience. Read through these resources and be sure to share this information with your families.
