Safety in the Field & Abroad

Please refer to our Safety in the Field document for important information on personal safety, food safety, medical issues, communication plans, dealing with unexpected political turmoil and many other issues to consider when doing field research. All Western students participating in University sanctioned international activities are now required to enrol in Western's International Travel Registry. This information enables Western to monitor student safety, update students on travel advisories from the Canadian Government, and locate and provide assistance in case of an emergency overseas.For more information about conducting research abroad, please visit Western's International & Student Exchange Centre.
