While overseas, on-site staff are available to help students seek care in the event of a medical emergency. They also facilitate orientations to help students understand any risks specific to the area where they are studying abroad.
Student safety abroad is carefully monitored by global overseas staff and domestic Brown staff. We work with students during the pre-departure process to prepare them for their surroundings, and educate them on what to expect in their new environment. Should a student ever feel unsafe while abroad, they should immediately speak with the on-site staff.
