Student safety

On arrival you will be briefed regarding general security issues. It is recommended that you do not travel alone in the city, especially at night. Certain areas of the city are not safe and you will be informed of these during your orientation. If you are ever uncertain, be sure to contact your coordinator or peer helper before venturing off on your own.

Some suggestions: keep your valuables locked away; do not carry large sums of money; do not display valuable items such as cameras, expensive jewellery etc. when you walk in the street.
