Going abroad, even for study purposes, might bring risks that you didn't expect in advance. To effectively prepare you for these unexpected situations the university organises travel safety instructions. When you are travelling to hazardous countries, based upon the travel advice of our government, you are obliged to participate in one of these instructions. When travelling to non-hazardous areas, the instructions are not mandatory, but you are free to participate. The purpose of the travel advice, based on a colour code which is explained in this video, is to provide objective information and advice to help you make better-informed decisions about foreign travel.

The instructions are organised once per month/six weeks. When you want or have to participate, you can register via the links. It is important to register for the instructions, since they will focus on the countries to be visited by the participants.

Please contact should you have any further questions.

Medical Examination

For some countries, a medical examination prior to your visit is mandatory. The SGZ provides a free basic examination.
This basic examination does not include the following examinations.

  • Chest x-ray
  • Mantoux test for TBC
  • Laboratory or blood testing

The costs of these examinations vary so check with the health care provider.


TU Delft provides a reimbursement of €50 (only at the SGZ) for vaccinations during an internship or study trip if this is required or advised in the country of destination.

The SGZ deducts this reimbursement from the bill. To take advantage of this discount, you must bring a completed vaccination form with you.

If you have supplementary insurance, the vaccination costs may be (partly) charged to the health insurer.
