So you are back from your education abroad program and are wondering how to go abroad again. If you are a student still, you can always do another program! If you are about to graduate and are wondering how to continue the journey you can use the information on this site to decide to work, teach, volunteer, or do graduate school abroad.
Graduate Schools with an International Focus
If you have already studied at one of our exchange partners abroad, you may feel the connection and desire to apply as a graduate student there. That is completely fine, and we hope that you pursue it if you are inspired to do so. This, however, is not a study abroad through IUP, so there is little that our office can do to support you in the processes.
There are a number of companies that offer graduate programs abroad as well. Two good ways to find them include visiting the following sites:
International Volunteer Opportunities for After Graduation
International Work Opportunities
International Teaching Opportunities
