Insurance Claims Data and Mortality Rate for College Students Studying Abroad
The Forum on Education Abroad, 2016
Education abroad and its professionals must maintain and continuously strive to improve student health and safety abroad. This can be achieved by offering high quality education abroad programs, providing training for education abroad professionals and students, and regularly reviewing health and safety policies and procedures and adjusting them as necessary. The purpose of this report is to provide data that offer students, parents, faculty and administrators, legislators, and the general public objective information regarding the safety of education abroad. This report should be useful for ascertaining the general level of risk faced by U.S. university students abroad, and how this compares to the level of risk that students face when they remain on campus in the U.S.
