Health and Safety

We're committed to ensuring that students are prepared to have a safe and healthy experience abroad. 

Health Clearance

Students on most programs are required to obtain a physical from a medical physician and be cleared for travel.

Safety Updates

Sign up to receive periodic UT Austin safety updates by email so you know what's going on where you are or where you plan to go.

Overseas Insurance

All UT students conducting official university business while abroad are required to be covered by the UT System International Plan.

Smart Traveler Enrollment Program

STEP is a free service to allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

In an Emergency

You can't prepare for every situation. If you're involved in an emergency while abroad, find resources here to help you.

H&S Workshops

Health & Safety workshops are country and region specific and your best source of information and advice on staying safe and well while you are abroad.
