Support and Safety

UCEAP students are supported by a network of people throughout the world. Your study abroad experience will be guided by trained staff that are there to support you as you prepare to study abroad, when you arrive, and throughout the program. 

Here’s what you need to know about this program:

Orientations

To help navigate the transition of leaving home and going abroad, you’ll attend in-person and online events. At these events, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and meet the staff who will be supporting you while you study abroad. You’ll learn things like:

  • What student services are available at your host location
  • Where to find local health care
  • How and when to register for classes
  • What to do and who to contact in an emergency
  • How to travel to and from where you live to classes
  • How to handle money matters like opening a bank account
  • How to use technology, including your phone, and get access to the Internet

Most on-site orientations include a tour of the campus and local sites. You will also meet other students on your program and local students who will be part of your experience.
