Health & Safety

UNF is committed to our students' health and safety abroad while minimizing international security risks. For this reason, all of our faculty-led, exchange and other individual study abroad locations are assessed for risk according to the U.S.Department of State Travel Advisory Levels. Additionally, all students traveling abroad on a UNF activity are required to watch the UNF Safety Abroad video orientation and to have international accident/health insurance and emergency medical assistance. UNF International Center staff are available to assist students with assessing individual risks of travel and what additional steps may be recommended to promote a safe experience abroad.
