J-Term Application for NYU New York and Shanghai Students

The J-Term application for NYU New York and NYU Shanghai students is now closed.
The application deadline has passed.

The application is for undergraduate students from NYU New York and NYU Shanghai interested in taking an NYU Abu Dhabi January Term 2018 course. 

Enrollment in the NYUAD J-Term courses is limited so participating students can fully benefit from the advantages of small-size, seminar-style classes. As a result, the selection process is very competitive.

Before you apply, we encourage you to learn more about NYU Abu Dhabi.
