MSM Higher Ed Prep offers a genuine global pathway designed for all students from all countries regardless of their study destination.
KELOWNA, British Columbia - Sept. 7, 2020 - PRLog -- In keeping with its vision of delivering high-quality education and university pathways to students, MSM Higher Ed's Prep School has announced the launch of Global Awareness and Study Skills (GASS). This course prepares students for studying abroad and boosts higher education institutions' pre-departure services in the post-COVID-19 environment. MSM Higher Ed Prep offers a genuine global pathway designed for all students from all countries regardless of their study destination. It builds students' global awareness and study skills, preparing them for an enjoyable, smooth transition and successful educational experience abroad.

College Preparation Course for  Study Abroad Students

The course features seven key modules featuring topics, including pre-departure planning, arrival planning, social and cultural awareness, part-time employment preparation, effective study skills and academic integrity along with destination institution content. GASS may be tailored to an HEI's requirements through workshops, presentations, assigned reading, or video viewing. "What distinguishes MSM Higher Ed Prep is its online accessibility, customized and well-aligned with a student's desired college or university track in any part of the world," said Donna Hooker, MSM Higher Ed President. "We are immensely excited how this initiative showcases our goals of offering education management solutions that transform lives and communities, including for students who plan to study abroad and the institutions that receive them."

Internationalizing HEIs

Since 2012, MSM has been providing pre-departure orientation services to students and parents on behalf of its partner institutions. These briefings are a key feature of its global and in-country offices that promises increased international enrollment via dedicated recruitment and local representation in targeted student markets. Through Higher Ed Prep, HEIs can standardize student preparation and distill it into a single course, and  focus their incoming orientations on their unique campus offerings and student services. It is "only through a global lens" that higher education will flourish, noted Hooker, pointing to the role of international partnerships in creating innovative higher education solutions. One such solution is the MSM Higher Ed Pathways that will be delivered in multiple countries, making it possible for students to begin their studies near home and graduate from recognized institutions in Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
