University Prep Program (UPP)

About the Program

We are excited to announce the launch of the 2021 University Prep Program (UPP), dedicated to supporting students to prepare excellent applications for college on the CommonApp. The virtual program will take students on a journey where they are exposed to all the information they need, reflect on their personal goals, build key skills needed for a successful application in workshop-style sessions, and find a community of like-minded peers.

NYU Abu Dhabi provides this online program at no cost to the participants.

Program graduates will be encouraged to act as mentors and advisors to peers within their respective high schools and share the knowledge and skills they have gained through this program.

  • This virtual program was designed with flexibility for students to attend sessions that fall at different times during the day.

    Date: August 9-11, 2021
    Time: 45-60 minute sessions to be held at 9am, 1pm, and 6pm (GST) each day.*

    * Participants must participate in all mandatory meetings.

    Students must follow the application instructions in order to be considered for this program. The application form can be found in the Applications Instructions tab.

    Deadline: Applications are due on July 1, 2021
