Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness

Students’ wellbeing is a priority for ieiMedia. We have created risk management strategies that account for health services, crisis management, safety and security, and community standards for all our programs.

Planning and preparation are key in supporting students even before the program begins. Our faculty and staff are proactive in providing guidance and assistance to students by organizing accommodations or creating wellness plans. They remain available 24/7 throughout the program for students and families.

Travel Insurance

ieiMedia provides all participants with a comprehensive medical insurance plan through iNext that includes counseling services and other mental health resources through the MySSP App.

US Travel Advisories

ieiMedia follows the guidelines and restrictions for international travel set forth by the US Department of State.  Please refer to the travel advisories for the destination of the ieiMedia program in which you are enrolled.  While the cause of an increased travel advisory level can affect our programs uniquely, our policy is to allow our programs to run at level 1, 2 and 3.  Level 3 may cause a program to cancel depending on the region of the country that is at level 3.  Careful consideration is given to the circumstances to determine if the program should still run.  Level 4 will cause a program cancelation.  All cancelation decisions will consider the probability of a change in the travel advisory level by the time of the program.

Learn About Your Destination

The US Department of State has a helpful area to learn about your travel destination.  Travel Information is available through search by country.   Information provided includes, vaccination requirements, Tourist Visa requirements, currency restrictions, passport validity and more.  Also there are additional resources regarding the following topics;

  • List of U.S. Embassies and Consulates
  • Information by Travel Type
  • Traveler’s Checklist
  • What the Department of State Can and Can’t Do in a Crisis
  • Your Health Abroad
  • Driving and Road Safety Abroad
  • Lodging Safety

ieiMedia no longer requires a COVID-19 vaccine to participate in programming. We will treat COVID-19 like any other infectious illness and follow appropriate isolation and quarantine standards for that location according to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local country and city health officials. If an individual is experiencing symptomatic disease/illness, they should not come to class until those symptoms fully resolve regardless of local guidelines.
