Be assured that student safety is our number one priority. While past participants have enjoyed a safe and healthy time abroad, it is important to remember that petty theft, traffic accidents, illness, injury and crime all exist overseas, just as they do in the United States. The College of Business makes every effort to establish programs in areas of political stability and openness to Americans. We have strong relationships with the host institutions and communicate often with students and coordinators throughout the term abroad. Please understand that we are limited on the type of information we can legally release due to FERPA laws that protect student confidentiality. We suggest you familiarize yourself with the following health and safety resources. Remember students are subject to host country laws.
OSU Office of Global Opportunities — OSU GO oversees and supports study abroad programs across campus. Their website provides excellent information regarding health and safety of OSU students abroad.
Health and Safety Abroad — The OSU GO office monitors travel health and safety risk for all OSU students studying abroad. This also includes enrolling students in a mandatory travel health insurance program (billed to student account).
Study abroad is more than just a trip; it's a chance to learn about yourself, explore a new culture and uncover topics that spark your interest. Challenge yourself to see what the world has to offer.
