Student Resources

Duke Immerse offers more than a semester-based classroom experience; it offers an integrated curriculum of four required courses and embedded travel. These programs often challenge students and instructors to become more aware of, critically engage with, and question the world in which they live. Duke Immerse invites cohorts to learn together, integrating their social, personal, and intellectual points of view. The intensity of Duke Immerse offers rewards and challenges; here are a few resources to support a positive experience.

  • Travel Registry is required for all Duke Immerse students, staff, and faculty prior to travel.
  • Dial 9-1-1 for an emergency within the United States.
  • International SOS (ISOS) offers all Duke students, staff and faculty travel, medical and security advice, and services when studying and working outside of the United States.
    • Students, staff, and faculty can download and print their ISOS cards here.
