Health & Safety
Drexel makes the health, safety, and security of its students the highest priority. Nonetheless, students are expected to share in the responsibility for their well-being. Being informed and accountable is part of that process.
Students are given health and safety information in the Study Abroad Pre-departure Guide, pre-departure orientation, as well as the orientation material provided by our overseas partners. In addition, students and parents might find the following links useful regarding health and safety issues.
Drexel Study Abroad requires the purchase of On Call International Emergency Medical and Evacuation Insurance for all study abroad participants unless a particular program includes a comparable insurance policy as a requirement for participation.
