For students and University staff, wherever they are travelling to and for whatever purpose, today’s world is too uncertain not to consider the risks associated with travel and entering or leaving foreign countries.

Lancashire County Cricket Club, to demonstrate the vulnerability of students and staff travelling abroad, and to showcase its unique assistance solution, ConsularAssist.

Recent figures from UKCISA show that more than 438,000 students in Higher Education (HE) in the UK travelled from overseas in 2015-16 to study here. In the same year, 27,405 UK nationals chose to travel abroad for some or all of their higher education. When adding the HE staff travelling around the world as part of their job, the number of international trips increases significantly.

For students and University staff, wherever they are travelling to and for whatever purpose, today’s world is too uncertain not to consider the risks associated with travel and entering or leaving foreign countries. Particularly for young people travelling alone for the first time, even a small problem like a lost passport or visa issue can be overwhelming, and in the event of an emergency, the effects can have a far-reaching impact.

In addition to political uncertainty in the EU, Universities are increasingly facing the challenge of demonstrating duty of care in perceived areas of increased risk due to terror attacks in recent years.

Whilst UK universities have support structures in place, these resources are not unlimited, and governments are not in a position to assist everyone who has a problem while abroad; so, many students find themselves alone and vulnerable if an incident happens during travel or in-country.

ConsularAssist, from Consularcare, the first and only provider of private consular assistance, provides dedicated consular support whenever, and wherever it is needed with one simple call. With 24/7 access to the expertise and support of former Diplomats, prompt resolution to issues is facilitated.
