Safety Abroad

Western’s Safety Abroad Policy outlines procedures to help enhance student safety when travelling internationally on university-sanctioned activities.

Note: All students travelling internationally on university-sanctioned activities are required to register with Western’s Travel Registry no later than three weeks prior to travelling.

This helps you prepare for your international experience and allows Western to respond with help should an emergency arise.

Please consult Western’s Safety Abroad website for step-by-step guidance when preparing to travel abroad and details on how to register in Western’s Travel Registry. The website offers many other resources for travelling internationally and includes information on International SOS – a worldwide service to help students prepare for travel abroad and assist in emergency situations.
