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, Tel Aviv, and Washington DC.

As part of a fully integrated curriculum, all courses taken abroad at the NYU Global Program Sites count toward obtaining an NYUAD degree. Students can 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.
