Health and Safety are one of the most important concern of Goproabroad. Teams are trained and experienced in the matters of health, safety, and emergencies. They will accompany you from your admission to your return and will support you in any case.
Every country has its own health and safety policy.
The health insurance will be available for all the duration of your program and is included in your program fee.
The policy is specially designed for students traveling internationally, and it includes coverage for physical and some mental health issues, counseling, medical and other forms of evacuation, a bed-side benefit for students hospitalized for more than a few days (which pays to fly family members to their bedside), and more.
Once you are accepted into a program, you will participate in a health and safety training program that focuses on known health, safety, and security risks in the city or region and how best to avoid or mitigate them.
Goproabroad will supply detailed health and safety tips specific to your location and provide detailed information and written materials that include resources such as city maps, local emergency numbers, and specific instructions regarding various health, safety, and security issues.
You will also be given a small security card to carry with you at all times that contains Goproabroad office and on-site staff members contact information as well as our emergency phone number.
Our on-site staff is highly trained to support you for health and safety concerns while you are abroad. They can connect you with an English-speaking health care provider should you need any health professional.
Our on-site staff maintains close relationships with local police and governmental authorities, as well as with nearby Embassies and Consulates.
In order to help our staff members stay in touch in case of emergency, you are required to have a cell phone that works where you will be studying abroad.
By keeping your cell phone with you, charged, and turned on at all times, you will be able to respond promptly to emergency calls, emails, and text messages from Goproabroad.
At the beginning of every semester, Goproaborad teams organise a emergency training exercise. The main purposes of this exercise is to test how long it takes for all students to respond, to verify the accuracy of the cell phone number and to educate you on our system for reaching you.
Before travelling, you just need to inform on-site Goproabroad staff of your specific travel plans. If case of any emergency, Goproabroad will assist you in any country.
We have a dedicated double Emergency support hotline with staff members in the headquarter and on-site staff in every Goprobroad Center worldwide. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for all emergencies.
