Global Programs will advise on the possibility of combinations of remote courses at different global sites. For NYUAD, you would need to be enrolled in three courses (or at least 12 credits) to be a full-time student. Advantages include smaller class sizes, textbooks purchased for you by NYUAD, assistance with connectivity for conducting remote classes, access to our Health Center and Counseling Services (telemedicine), NYUAD Career Development Center support with graduate school and job applications, and, depending on your home location, convenience of time zone for remote classes.
Many courses at NYUAD, especially in the Arab Crossroads Program and Arabic Studies, bring you deeply into the culture of the UAE and the larger Arab world (past, present, and future.) Some of these courses will have virtual community-based learning components with expert speakers from the Emirates and other regions and virtual tours of local museums, nature reserves, organizations, and cities.
