Health & Safety

Upon arrival in Valladolid you will attend a detailed orientation that includes a session on staying safe and healthy while living in Spain.

Medical Insurance

Student safety is a priority for BCA Study Abroad. To help ensure that you remain healthy while abroad, BCA supplies all summer students with international medical insurance coverage during the dates of the program. In addition to medical coverage, this policy includes evacuation services in case an on-site emergency arises.

Staying Safe

While you are abroad, it is important to follow the same common-sense safety precautions that you follow at home: never walk alone at night, keep doors locked, do not allow strangers into your housing and never leave bags or backpacks unattended. We strongly urge all students to read the U.S. Department of State’s information regarding travel to Spain.
