Education without Borders 2017

13 November 2017
We are proud to be sponsoring, exhibiting and speaking, at the Education without Borders 2017 travel risk conference in Manchester on 22nd November.

Education without Borders has set the stage and the pace for the Higher Education sector to increase awareness, capability and best practice in travel risk management and attracts industry experts from universities and colleges across the globe.

Managing Duty of Care and maintaining academic freedom are often hard to knit together, but both must be achieved. Higher Education institutions are becoming increasingly global and are sending more students and staff overseas than ever before. The issue of travel risk management is of course one that is 'shared by many owned by none' and collaboration is at the heart of success.

The incidents which may occur overseas are as broad as they are common, and this conference aims to get to the heart of how we can ensure every student, staff member and academic can return from their travels not only wiser, but safe and well. 

Key topics include:
  • Perception of risk in one's home country
  • The contrast between Higher Education and the corporate world
  • Female travel safety in Higher Education
  • Managing travel threats and vulnerabilities in complex environments
