What are MSM Higher Ed Pathways?

Preparation is 


MSM Higher Ed prepares students from all countries for a smooth transition to their study abroad experience through its Higher Ed Prep course Global Awareness and Study Skills (GASS).

All Set Before Take-Off

The world can be a big and unpredictable place, especially for a student flying solo to a foreign country to study. Studying abroad may have its perks: like bigger opportunities and a chance to be exposed to different cultures, but it can also be quite daunting.
Many things can make or break a student’s experience abroad; from poor foresight and preparation to the general anxiety of being alone and far from home for the first time. GASS makes sure that students are ready to embark on this journey by equipping them with the knowledge and tools necessary for a smoother transition to their study destinations.
