Students Travelling/Working Abroad

While international travel can provide numerous opportunities for students and student employees to gain valuable education and cross-cultural experiences, travel always involves some risk. Travellers may become ill while in transit and on-site. Concerns about this upcoming academic year, in the context of the H1N1 pandemic, have led to the creation of the health checklist for you to read through as a guideline to assist you to prepare yourself appropriately. While H1N1 is a newer threat, it is not the only illness that you may be exposed to while travelling. It is critical that you consider your own protocol to put in place to enable you to confront health-related risks and provide you with the basic means of addressing illness if it develops.

All students working/studying abroad must submit this form to their Departmental Safety Officer.
