While the University has arranged extensive World coverage, risk must always be assessed prior to travel by filling in a Travel Risk Assesssment. To further support staff and students to mitigate the risks of operating in, and traveling to difficult and unfamiliar environments, the University also has access to the Risk Monitor Traveller Website. This includes an online service which provides advice and travel alerts for potential destinations, which should be used in conjunction with the FCO Website. This dedicated website offers more destination details and advice on controlling operation risk, as well as the ability to set up email alerts for specific regions, countries or events. See travel changes for details of how to access.
