Study Abroad & Transfers
An Important Reminder on Study Abroad Travel Advice
Webster University’s main campus in St. Louis, Missouri and international campuses in Europe continue to closely monitor developments following last week’s attacks in Paris. We are following information from the U.S. Department of State and other agencies and are in contact with each other and our partner institutions. We are working with individual students and their families to answer individual questions and concerns.
We remind students who are abroad of important advice:
- Stay in touch with your campus Study Abroad/Student Affairs office. Be sure staff have your current cell phone number. Notify a staff member of any travel you plan, including departure and return dates.
- Carry the campus Study Abroad Coordinator’s contact information with you in case you need to contact him/her.
- Monitor media and local information sources. Take this information into consideration when planning activities and travel.
- If you haven’t already done so, enroll in the Smart Travel Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive U.S. Department of State security messages and to make it easier for friends, family, and the local U.S. Embassy to locate you in case of an emergency.
- Stay connected with family and friends so that they know you are well.
- Make sure you have travel documents (i.e., passport and visa) on you at all times and keep copies of these documents in another place.
- Be alert to your surroundings and the people with whom you have contact.
- Avoid protests, large gatherings, and any potentially threatening situations.
- If you encounter a situation that doesn’t feel right or if you see something suspicious, remove yourself from the situation and report it to the local authorities immediately.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your program at Webster University, please contact Webster University. For students at our international campus, please contact your campus Study Abroad Coordinator. For U.S. students, you may also contact the Office of Study Abroad in St. Louis at 314-968-6988. For emergencies, you may contact our Office of Public Safety’s 24-hour emergency line at 314-968-6911.
Webster University students may choose to spend a term or more studying abroad at one of the international campuses, normally without interrupting their progress toward degrees at Webster. Students interested in more than one international study experience are encouraged to study for two or more terms at a combination of the international campuses.
