Candidate Weekend has been a vital part of the NYU Abu Dhabi admissions process since our very first admissions cycle. It is a unique and important chance to get a glimpse into what it’s like to live and learn in our global community in the cosmopolitan city of Abu Dhabi. In the 2023-2024 admissions cycle (for students seeking first year admission to NYU Abu Dhabi in fall 2024), we are pleased to announce that we will be returning to an in-person Candidate Weekend experience for the first time since 2020.
Participation in a Candidate Weekend is by invitation only, and all students who are invited are required to attend to remain eligible for admission. There are a number of changes this cycle, which we ask all applicants to take note of:
Candidate Weekend consists of a series of events to help students gain a more complete understanding of the NYU Abu Dhabi experience — student life, academics, campus leadership.

● Early Decision II – February 9-10, 2024
