Safety and Emergency Procedures

Prepare, Be Responsible, and Work With the Program

Michigan Technological University takes student safety and well-being very seriously. But we can’t guarantee a risk-free overseas environment any more than we can for students studying in the US. The best way to be safe during your study abroad experience is to be aware, be responsible, and follow the advice of Michigan Tech and your program staff.

Be Prepared

It’s natural that students and parents have questions about the safety of study abroad. We have answers.

Take Responsibility

Students who follow simple recommendations are most likely to keep themselves safe and enjoy a great educational experience.

Know the Plan

It’s important to step back from the initial fear-based impulse and view the situation through a rational lens that separates fact from rumor.
