In foreign countries， Chinese students are particularly easier targets for thieves， who often look down at their mobile phones while walking. So：
Do not put your mobile phone and wallet in your coat pocket when walking in the street. It is better to put them in the inner lining or the pockets close to your thighs. At ordinary and casual occasions， you should try not to take out the wallet with many cards and certificates in it.
Don't focus on playing with your phone and forget to pay attention to the surroundings. If you need to use your phone while walking， please remember to carry your backpack on your chest！ If someone tries to bump into you or distract you by other means， protect your bag first！
When eating or hanging outside， please do not leave valuables on the table， suitcases and bags out of sight， and do not put them between the back of the chair and your body.
You must put your passport and BRP separately when you go out. It costs 56-600 pounds to apply for BRP.
Robbery may be more serious consequences than theft. Since it is a violent means， it will more or less do harm to personal safety， we must always remember to stay in the truth of green mountains， personal safety is always the first！！
Motorcycling robbing cell phones is a relatively common robbery behavior， so when walking in the street， especially when waiting for traffic lights if you want to use a cell phone， please try to stand in a crowded place.
At night， men and women， please do not walk alone at night. During the day， also， pay more attention to sparsely populated areas， to be vigilant against stalking.
The emergency call button should be set on the mobile phone， and the emergency contact should be a friend who is trusted in the UK， as parents may not have access to the phone at home and suffer from jet lag.
3.性骚扰 Sexual Harassment
In the UK， the problem of sexual harassment is common for both men and women. Even during the day， there are some cases of people being dragged into an alley and raped while in a group， especially for those who like to go to nightclubs.
Remember that the red-light district is not the only restricted zone， also some place like sparsely populated parks or alleyways should be careful to.
Be in groups， go outside more at daytime rather than night.
If you encounter someone who forcibly catches you in a public place， you must warn him loudly to let go or you will call the police and let the people around you hear. Be clear in your attitude， and don't keep silence because of fear.
When necessary， you can strike back to genitals and run away as fast as you can.
Prepare for the worst before you have a good trip： if these bad things have happened， how to deal with that？
Check BRP and Passport are still there
问题不大 No problem
Check your bank card/credit card again. If it is stolen or robbed， call the bank immediately to stop using the card. If it is the bank of England， you can be sent a new card.
Call the nearest Chinese embassy and apply for a new passport or you won't be able to go back.
A. If you are still in the UK， you can go to the UK government website to report the loss and make up for it. Normal replacement fee = 56 pounds， plus delivery fee is about 100 pounds， which take 2~3 monthst. Expedit fee = 600 pounds， which takes about one week， and super expedite fee is about 10，000 pounds， which takes just one day
B. When in other countries except China and the UK， you have two options：
- Apply for temporary Visa back in China (replacement Visa)
- Apply for a one-time visa at the British embassy in that country
C. If you are in China， you can apply for a one-time visa. After entering the UK， all the procedures are the same as A. The temporary visa fee is about 150 pounds
Last step： Alarm
Alarm is divided into two case， one is the telephone alarm， the other is to report to the police station
电话报警 telephone alarm
In an emergency， dial 999 because it is the number for all types of emergencies， so you need to make it clear whether you need medical aid， fire or police， and explain simply who you are， where you are and what has happened. The operator will then decide how to help you based on the actual situation. After the alarm is finished， keep on the line and wait for help.
If it is not urgent， dial 101. What can be solved is the situation that does not endanger personal safety. In addition， it takes longer to solve your problem.
警局报警 police station
There are receptions at every police station and there will be many people in the queue， which， the same as doing business at a bank， first explain clearly what kind of help do you need， and then wait for police officer to give you a form to complete， which contains your personal information and the details of the case， and don't worry， you'll get patient guidance.
The exception is sexual harassment， you need to call the police immediately， after catching the suspect， the police will need you to go to the station to record， because this behavior is considered a crime， do not feel troublesome or suffer in silence.
In Britain， small cities are generally safer and the crime rate is lower， but in big cities like London， Manchester and Birmingham， criminals are more rampant. Usually a bit higher vigilance is always harmless， also don't panic in emergency circumstances， think about how to deal with. After all， studying abroad is a process of exercising independence and ability to deal with things. We should learn to protect ourselves. Finally， I wish all my friends a safe and happy time studying aboard in the UK！
