Staying safe

The UK is generally a safe place with low levels of crime and Belfast has been cited by the United Nations as the second safest city in the world after Tokyo. But whenever you travel to a new country, it is vital that you look after yourself.

We strongly recommend that you read the British Council's Creating confidence guide. It is designed for international students, and covers essential advice about staying safe in the UK. 

The Safety First guide also has lots of safety advice for visitors to the UK.  Safety_First_British_Council_Guide.pdf

In an emergency, dial 999 to contact the police, fire brigade or ambulance. This call is free of charge from any UK phone but should only be used in an emergency.

If you need to report a crime or an incident that is not an emergency, dial 101, or ask someone at Campbell College to contact your local police station for you.
