    As you think about preparing for your future as a political scientist – are you considering studying or a career outside of the US? In this chapter, we draw on our collective experiences from Spain and the UK to sketch out some key issues you might want to consider when looking at graduate courses or academic positions abroad. Are there any major trade-offs that need to be considered? From master’s level to doctoral studies through securing your first political science academic post, and everything in-between. We attempt to explore and unpack these to lay out the options available for prospective and current graduate students thinking about their future prospects as political science academics beyond the US. This manuscript is part of Strategies for Navigating Graduate School and Beyond, a forthcoming volume for those interested in pursuing graduate education in political science.
