Studying away from home is a great experience and a fantastic way of getting to know another culture. But remember to keep yourself safe, especially if you are unfamiliar with your surroundings.
This guide will give you some basic advice on travelling and socialising safely. The vast majority of students get through their studies without incident so make sure that you aren't the unlucky one.
In an emergency, call 999 from any telephone for police, ambulance or fire services assistance. Your call will be free.
