Safety Abroad

All students, staff and faculty planning international travel should take the initiative to learn about their host country and take reasonable precautions to ensure they stay healthy and safe. This includes becoming familiar with Western's Safety Abroad Policy.

Western has also invested in International SOS (ISOS) , a worldwide service available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, should you need emergency assistance. ISOS also provides information and resources to help you plan your trip.

Steps for travelling internationally on University sanctioned* activities:

* University sanctioned international travel refers to any activities involving travel outside of Canada that have been approved, authorized, and/or supported by a Western University unit, department, staff, and/or faculty member.

Students, please consult Western's glossary of International Learning terms to determine if your travel falls within these parameters.
