Field Research Guidelines
The University of Toronto has current policy surrounding students conducting research, including research out of country. All departments and supervisors should consult Safety in Field Research Policy and complete the Field Research Planning Record. Please note, that this policy is NOT administered by the Safety Abroad Program. However, if staff or students would like advice regarding risks associated with out of country travel, they are encouraged to contact the Safety Abroad Advisor.
