Candidate Weekend

For your safety, and the safety of our community, Candidate Weekend will be virtual this year.

Candidate Weekend has been a vital part of the NYU Abu Dhabi admissions process for more than a decade. Although the 2021-2022 Candidate Weekend will be offered virtually, it is still a unique and important chance to get a glimpse into what to live and learn in our global community in the cosmopolitan city of Abu Dhabi.


All About (Virtual) Candidate Weekend

Participation in a Candidate Weekend is by invitation only, and all students who are invited are required to attend to remain eligible for admission. As a virtual event, Candidate Weekend consists of a series of live and pre-recorded content, offering you the chance to get to know various components of the NYU Abu Dhabi experience — student life, academics, campus leadership — and have the opportunity to engage with faculty, staff, and current students.

The Candidate Weekend dates for the 2021-2022 application cycle are:

●      Early Decision I –  December 10-12, 2021

●      Early Decision II – February 4-6, 2022

●      Regular Decision – March 11-13, 2022

Applicants who are invited to participate in Candidate Weekend will receive a detailed schedule of events with their invitations. Candidates should expect to attend between four and six live sessions over the course of three days, and will be able to view the recorded content on an on-demand basis. To participate in Candidate Weekend, you will need internet access through a computer or smartphone.
