Event description

Description

Interested in competing abroad as a masters student? Join us in Buffalo for a FREE grad school fair to connect with recruiters from colleges in Europe that are looking for former student-athletes interested in extending their playing careers abroad while earning a masters.

Buffalo is thrilled to be the ONLY city in America hosting an event to directly connect local college athletes with staff from worldclass universities in the UK and Ireland. These universities provide former college athletes with a once in a lifetime opportunity to:

  • Continue playing the sport they love in college (even if they've used up their NCAA eligibility)
  • Earn an accredited masters degree in ONE year for HALF the price of a masters in the US (that's right...HALF the price)
  • Travel the world

The TG Experience is for students who aren't ready to give up their sport, always wanted to study abroad but never got to because of sport commitments, and are considering getting a masters degree. If this option sounds right up your alley, we strongly encourage you to attend. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE! (Plus...there's free food and a tshirt for the first 100 students through the door.)





WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

  • Current NCAA, NAIA, or Collegiate Club student-athletes (especially Juniors and Seniors).
  • Young alum and recent graduates. You DO NOT have to be straight out of college to pursue the TG Experience. Many of our students have been in the work force for several years, and pursue this experience after realizing one of the following:
    - they need a masters to progress in their current career
    - they want to make a career change
    - they miss playing their sport
    - they feel stuck and are seeking adventure
  • Students of ANY age. Former participants typically range from 21-35 years old.
  • Students from ANY country. You DO NOT have to be American to join our program.
  • Non-athletes. You DO NOT have to be an athlete to join our program. We offer resources to ANY students interested in earning a masters abroad.
  • Parents, college coaches, or athletic department staff are welcome to attend.
  • You MUST have ALREADY GRADUATED to pursue this opportunity, but it's never too early to start learning about it.

  1. University of Bath
  2. Bournemouth University
  3. University of Derby

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
This is an informal event and we recommend repping your school's name or logo (team sweats are fine) so European recruiters know what college you attend/attended.


WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

  • 10 copies of your resume (this is a suggestion, NOT a requirement)
  • Your friends :)


TIPS FOR STANDING OUT:

  • Approach tables and initiate conversations with recruiters
  • Be personable and polite
  • Have a firm handshake
  • Come with questions
  • Know how to pronounce the name of a university before visiting their table (pronunciation information will be provided via email prior to event)
  • Be open-minded and excited about this brand new opportunity available to you (it's real, we promise!)
