Study Abroad Drug Regulatory

Traveling abroad for study or personal reasons can be a transformative educational experience and helps develop global citizens. To protect student health and safety while studying abroad, students must plan ahead for international experiences by researching any immunization requirements of the countries they are visiting; and be aware of any special precautions they need to take prior to leaving home.

Make sure that students know how to access medical help if necessary, such as the correct way to access emergency care if an incident arises. Only take prescription medication with an official written order from their physician and carry copies with them – France and Japan have restrictions regarding how much medication one can bring into their countries, specifically in relation to France’s and Japan’s specific regulations regarding how much can be brought in per visit.

If students decide to consume alcohol while abroad, they must do so responsibly and be aware that local laws could impose harsh penalties if caught drinking in public or being drunk in bars and restaurants. Drug use is illegal in most countries and even possession can have severe legal repercussions; faculty and staff members should be encouraged to speak out against illicit student drug and alcohol usage and serve as positive role models.

Sexually transmitted infections pose another risk when studying abroad, and should not be transmitted via unsafe sex. Therefore, students must follow local social norms regarding displays of affection and dating as well as use condoms and emergency contraception if available. They should also feel empowered to report any instances of sexual harassment or assault directly to local authorities, emergency contacts and their program coordinator.

Additionally, the University of New Haven’s prevention policies aim to apply the institution’s policies in foreign environments where U.S. laws cannot be enforced. Policies prohibiting student use of illicit drugs and alcohol as well as sales or misuse of prescription or over-the-counter medication are among them. This practice not only helps minimize potential lawsuits brought forth by students harmed through intoxicated student conduct, but also strengthens its educational mission. In cases of drug or alcohol-related injuries, students could face being dismissed from the program due to violating this policy, with potentially severe financial, professional, and personal repercussions. To address these risks through education, counseling, and outreach. It’s wise to speak to their advisor or contact the Learning Abroad Center if they would like more information regarding these and other risks of study abroad.
