NYU Abu Dhabi

NYU Abu Dhabi is changing the way higher education is experienced in the 21st century. It is the first liberal arts and science college with engineering in the Middle East that is part of a major US research university.

The students at this one-of-a-kind institution do some amazing things: live in the world's newest capital of culture and ideas; research alongside internationally renowned faculty; study with peers from around the world; explore NYU's global network; shape the future; and dream big. The undergraduate curriculum is nothing short of revolutionary in the rigor of its offerings and the conceptualization of a global education for the 21st century.

In keeping with our commitment to providing an engaging and challenging liberal arts and science education, NYU Abu Dhabi will always have a small student body and a student-to-faculty ratio that will never exceed 8:1 (it is currently 4:1). Admission to NYU Abu Dhabi is highly competitive, but with the support of your nominations, your top candidates could be part of our exceptional student body.

We encourage you to read more about the undergraduate program, the faculty, financial support opportunities, the admissions timeline, and the current students while you consider which of your top students would be the best fit for NYU Abu Dhabi.
