Get out of here?

A+ A-

I'm in my third year of university studying in an arab country and my main goal is to get away and live somewhere else post-graduation. The only option available seems to pursue a Masters degree and study abroad, but I really would prefer not to have to do that.

Any other ideas as to how I can get out?

    your best bet i think is a job opportunity abroad. is that possible? you can start the job seeking process as early as now to get an idea of where you prefer to go and which field you'd like to work in.

    • Hmm well my degree isn't the most acclaimed, and not the most popular field (english literature)... I also have no experience whatsoever outside of studying. But it's definitely worth a shot. As for the field, I'm really interested in women's issues and humanitarian work in that aspect. As well as LGBT rights activism. Any idea how/where I could start looking? Thank you!

      actually with english literature you can become a tutor in another country. and also for humanitarian work you can look at places like the UN they always have a million job openings but the pay wont be amazing unless you have master's i think or with some experience in the field.

    • Omg! that's a great idea, wow thanks a lot! I've looked it over and they seem to require you to be at least in the process of gaining a master's to pay you for the job, but like you mentioned there's tonnes of jobs! Hopefully I'll find one suited for me. I also think I have a cultural advantage having lived in both western and middle eastern societies, so lets hope that helps!
