Please purchase travel insurance that allows you to cancel or postpone your flight in case of illness or other emergencies. This can be done on most platforms when purchasing your flight or through an insurance provider (for example BCAA or UVic student care).

Make sure you have health insurance that covers your entire trip. You might already have health insurance for travel, for example with UVSS extended health insurance or your parents extended health insurance. Please guarantee that it covers health costs in Europa (such as a hospital stay in case of emergency) and costs that might occur if you might get COVID (for example a change of flight dates or a stay in a hotel to isolate).

Many students want to participate in this opportunity and planning and making reservations starts many months in advance. If you have to cancel your participation in the field school, please get in touch as soon as possible so we can work on a solution.
