Student health, safety and security while in South Africa are our top priorities. The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University is prepared to deal with any emergencies that may arise. Our experienced and well-connected staff members in Glenside and in South Africa are prepared to support students thorough pre-departure and on-site orientation information, and 24-hour staffed telephone numbers.
Although students may have health insurance which can be used internationally, Arcadia automatically enrolls all students studying in South Africa in a health and accident insurance plan.
