Health and safety


The Global Student is committed to ensuring a safe and risk adverse experience for all our program participants. Information is constantly updated and provided through pre-departure information, orientation programs and communication via program specific FB pages.

Program participants are provided information both at pre-departure and again during orientation, that covers the following information:

  • Site-specific advice on eating and drinking
  • What to do in case of illness
  • Location of nearest medical assistance
  • Risk minimising behaviour and attitudes
  • Consumption of alcohol
  • Advice on local areas that are not considered safe

24 hour emergency support

TGS provides 24 hour emergency support and each program participant receives an emergency contact card

Emergency response plan

No overseas journey is without risk these days, and TGS is prepared for the possibility of having to manage a critical incident. Universities are provided copies of the TGS Risk Management and Emergency Response Plan,  and to ensure students know what to do in an emergency, an excerpt of this is provided to students, and discussed in detail, during orientation,
