Safety and Security

Our study abroad programs take place in secure residences, situated in safe neighborhoods, with controlled access and twenty-four hour security. Day-to-day life is overseen by teams of Deans - professional educators drawn from leading schools in the US, Canada, and Australia. Each program has an office, in a central location, which is open and permanently staffed by Deans from before 8am until well past midnight, where students and their parents can seek advice or assistance. Every student checks in personally, every evening, with the Deans on duty. The Program Director, Deans, residential staff, and some members of faculty live in the residences, ensuring round-the-clock care and supervision. The rules about exploring the cities vary from program to program. Generally speaking, students are free to discover the surrounding neighborhoods in small groups without adult supervision during the day and, in the older programs, in the evening. Program staff are available to accompany students and to ensure that the venues are both welcoming and safe.

Program Arrival and Departure

Every student is met personally by Oxbridge staff at the airport upon arrival and escorted to their student residence. At the end of the program, students are accompanied back to the airport, where our staff oversee check-in and departure. An Oxbridge representative will stay at the airport until every flight has departed.
