Semester Abroad

NYU Abu Dhabi study away programs are coordinated by the Office of Global Education and Outreach, which supports students before, during, and after their experiences abroad to maximize local engagement, intercultural learning, promote safety and health, and help students contribute as responsible global citizens in the communities they join— wherever they are in the world.

NYUAD students come from all over the world to study in Abu Dhabi. They then may spend up to two semesters of their NYUAD education studying abroad in NYU’s Global Network of academic centers in Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, Los Angeles, London, Madrid, New York, Paris, Prague, Shanghai, Sydney, Washington DC, and Tel Aviv.

As part of a fully integrated curriculum, all courses taken abroad as part of the NYU Global Programs count fully toward graduation. Students get to have it all: progress toward graduation and their field(s) of study while immersing themselves deeply in the study of a new language, culture, history, and host community. Student financial aid is fully applicable to the cost of the study abroad semesters.
