Managing Today’s Challenges while Preparing for Tomorrow
The COVID-19 pandemic has made managing international programmes even more complex and challenging for schools, colleges and universities. Yet international education remains critical to institutions and students alike.
Here are some ways International SOS has supported institutions:
- Evacuated eight students from Casablanca, Morocco who were facing flight restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak.
- Secured acute and ongoing emotional support for a student dealing with mental health challenges while studying abroad in London.
- Arranged and oversaw medical and security support for a faculty member in a serious car accident while on sabbatical in rural Chile.
- Conducted regular itinerary reviews by our medical and security teams to help a university evaluate, revise, and approve study abroad programmes during the pandemic.
Through a connected network of 27 Assistance Centres that span all major continents, our co-located health, security, and logistics professionals have local knowledge, expertise, access to exclusive pre-arranged resources and geographic proximity. They can provide immediate and comprehensive assistance directly to our clients’ students, faculty members and staff, wherever they are, whatever the circumstances.
