Overseas Travel

During the course of their time at SOAS many staff and students will be required to travel overseas.

SOAS extends the organisations legal duty of care standards as applied in the UK to those travelling abroad and will provide information, training, support and equipment to minimise the risk as far as is reasonably practicable.

Our Overseas travel policy (found on this page) provides extensive information on best safety practices, a link to the required on line risk assessment, as well as guidance on the safety measures that SOAS require to be in place prior to being permitted to travel. In addition there are links to various helpful organisations such as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the World Health Organisation.
