Take all reasonable measures and precautions to ensure your personal well-being.
Sufficient and appropriate health and safety precautions must be taken before you leave on your exchange. You'll need to obtain proper health insurance and vaccinations against disease before you go. Medical services and safety issues may differ greatly from what you are accustomed to so research these on the official website of the institutions and countries you plan to visit before you leave USA.
For information on health insurance coverage consult the Provincial Ministry of Health. For advice and information on health concerns for international travel, consult the staff at Local Health Offices. There is also valuable information at Health USAX website.
No one can guarantee an accident or injury-free semester away, so give serious thought to the possibility of such incidents. Research the areas you wish to visit and talk with other exchange students and professors who have visited the school you are interested in. Learn how you can safeguard yourself against the possibility of theft, burglary, property damage, personal injury or more serious crimes.
Returning to USAX
When you return to the academy after your time away, you may need to do some catching up on local, school and social events. Many students report feeling a bit out of touch with their home campus and fellow classmates. Your experiences may have changed your outlook and study focus. As a result you may also find your relationships with some friends and peers have changed. Finding a suitable housing arrangement with other students may present some difficulties. This is normal, so be prepared for some readjustment. It may be helpful for you to talk with the Study Abroad coordinator or other students who have gone on exchanges.
The Study Abroad exchange program at AAF is coordinated by the USAX Foundation of Business.
Our study abroad coordinator can provide information on general and administrative matters, pre-departure resources and procedures for applying for an exchange study, plus specific information regarding eligibility requirements, course selection for degree requirements and related academic matters.
