      1. Students should consider the health and safety implications of their Study Abroad Programme, familiarise themselves with travel safety advice, and understand the risks involved.

      2. The International Office provides some guidance on how students should make this assessment http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/international-office/exchanges/erasmus/health-insurance. It also suggests strategies to minimise risks including:

        1. attendance at a pre-departure meeting organised by the International Office

        2. taking out appropriate health insurance

        3. being aware of the Host Institution’s guidance on health and safety.

      3. Students should be given contact details for the person who is their first point of contact at the Host Institution and at the University of Edinburgh should any emergency situation arise.
