The Education Abroad Fair

The Education Abroad Fair is held every September. It showcases every international education opportunity available at Missouri State. Over 25 exhibits displaying information about Missouri State sponsored and affiliate programs give a great snapshot of the opportunities available to our #GlobalBears.

Knowledgeable program representatives can clarify your questions regarding finances, travel, culture, etc.

Here are some tips to make the best of this experience:

  • Browse: Walk through the fair at your leisure. Pick up brochures and information on programs that spark your interest. 
  • Ask Questions: Chat with MSU program directors program provider reps who are staffing the tables. Ask questions about funding opportunities, academic fit, health issues, and more.
