Health and Safety Abroad

Most students who study abroad do not experience problems that require emergency services or response; however, preparing for possible health and safety issues, and ensuring that appropriate health and safety support structures are in place on all PCC education abroad programs, is an important part of PCC's program planning and student support.

As part of the orientation process, all students participating in PCC-sponsored education abroad programs are provided with health/safety information specific to their program. All programs include 24/7 emergency contacts to provide support and assistance in the case of a health or safety emergency abroad.
