A New Model of Education
NYU Abu Dhabi develops future leaders who contribute their passion and skills to NYUAD and the UAE.
We’re not just sitting in classrooms reading books about the world. There’s a lot of interaction with the community in Abu Dhabi and the rest of the world. Getting outside my comfort zone, trying something new, and going to new places is something I’ve always cared about.
At NYUAD, I had the chance to study how glaciers in Greenland melt, spend a semester learning Spanish in Argentina, and travel to Zanzibar to investigate the meaning of marine heritage. This is what I would call education for life.
Internships, out-of-class interactions, and extracurricular activities were the most valuable part of my university experience. Interacting with students from different backgrounds shaped who I am today.
