Course description

The goal of this workshop is to create awareness of personal safety and security
risks for students travelling to areas with moderate risks.

This is achieved by:

  • Improving awareness and lowering of personal safety risks
  • Tips & Tricks for travel (preparation)
  • Personal development in dealing with aggression and indicating personal boundaries


  • Risk analysis: what is it and how to write one?
  • Personal risk profile: what risks do you bring to the equation?
  • Briefing & local security knowledge: how to get your information?
  • Crime, health, transport and stay
  • Dealing with aggression
  • Indicating personal boundaries


During the workshop we use different methods to engage with the students to
ensure active participation and personalisation of the learning experience:

  • Interactive sessions in which the level of experience of the student is taken into account
  • Graphic facilitating makes it possible to visualise topics and explain the context (pictures, videos and drawings)
  • Practical exercises in which risky situations are simulated. Students experience and learn to deal effectively with these situations
