The Language Flagship requires me to study overseas. Is that safe?
At The Language Flagship, student safety and security are our highest priorities. Living overseas can be exciting and a bit scary. We continuously monitor events in our partner countries, and we are in contact with U.S. embassies and missions in these regions. Students receive safety-awareness training and are well-oriented before departing from the U.S. Parents and students should know what sorts of risks are present in the host country and ways to handle potential problems. Living with a host family or in a closely monitored dormitory setting also increases student safety.
We encourage you to visit travel websites to learn more about foreign countries and different cultures. For more specific information on health and safety resources for U.S. college students studying abroad, visit www.globaled.us/safeti/.
