Events and Information Sessions
Your Education Abroad Adventure Begins Here
The Office of Education Abroad holds numerous information events throughout the academic year. These events are designed to help you learn about your program options and choose the program that's right for you.
The Education Abroad Fair
The Education Abroad Fair is held every September and February. It showcases every international education opportunity available at Missouri State. Over 25 exhibits displaying information about Missouri State sponsored and affiliate programs give you a great snapshot of the education abroad opportunities available to you.
You will find a range of options, including study, intern, and service abroad programs. Our knowledgeable program representatives can clarify your questions regarding finances, travel, culture, etc.
With numerous programs to choose from, we understand that the fair can be overwhelming. So, here are some tips to make the best of this experience:
- Browse: We suggest walking through the fair at your leisure. Look at the amazing photos, incredible videos, and interesting artifacts. Pick up brochures and information on the programs and options that spark your interest
- Ask Questions: Strike up a conversation with program directors or former participants who are staffing the tables. Representatives and Peer Advisors from offices around campus would love to talk to you. Don't forget to ask questions about funding opportunities, academic fit, health issues, and more.
