Opportunities After Graduation

Global Education and Millersville University have not reviewed or partnered with any of the resources listed on this webpage. It is important to do thorough research into any program or opportunity you apply for. Global Education also does not officially advise students on international experiences that will take place after you graduate from Millersville University. However, we encourage it! So we have compiled a list of programs and activities if you are interested in extending your interest in all things international.

Life After Study Abroad is a site that contains articles about various options for your next adventure abroad. www.lifeafterstudyabroad.com/ 
Grad School Abroad:
Many of MU’s past study abroad participants travel back overseas to gain Master’s degrees. Students have gone back to Philipps-University Marburg as well as Queen’s University Belfast. In fact, if you’ve studied abroad at Queen’s University Belfast and you go back for your Master’s degree there, they will give you a tuition discount!
 
Some European universities charge little to no tuition for studies regardless of nationality. While others can be similar costs to U.S. education. Just remember that US federal loans will not pay for you to get a degree abroad.
 
Will my degree be recognized? Generally yes, however for some professions like education, legal or medical professions, it may not be the best option.
