What would you do if, for instance, you were in Bangkok airport and suddenly discovered a paper parcel of drugs in your backpack? How should you react if you're mugged and who should you tell? The increasing need of safety awareness for young travellers lead to the creation of the Gap Safety course. In one day, students are given advice, warnings and responses to various situations they may face. It’s mostly common sense, but in the last 2 years, it has been invaluable to previous students who ran into trouble - especially worth thinking about if you're heading out of Europe on your year abroad.
Year abroad students can ask all of their questions about hiding money, travelling at night, packing sensibly, being safe on the streets and how do deal with unsuspected cultural differences, find out what they should do in all sorts of intrepid, scary and death-defying situations, take a pack of useful info, advice and contact details away with them, plus lunch and drinks are included! We definitely recommended this course for all year abroad students going further afield.
