Health & Safety
During pre-departure and the first days of orientation on site, APA covers a range of safety topics to prepare everyone with the knowledge to have a successful stay. Students know from the get-go that our on-site staff are available 24/7 for support, for issues big and small. A Prevention and Emergency Action Plan has been developed to quickly disseminate information and check in with all parties in the event of an emergency.
All students on every program must meet the Essential Eligibility Criteria. These points have been developed based on our 30+ years of experience in the field and best practices as outlined by the leading education abroad organizations of which APA is a member: Gap Year Association, Forum on Education Abroad, NAFSA, and APUAF.
Whether a seasoned traveler or this is the first time outside of the country for your child, below are a few helpful tips.
