For your safety, and the safety of our community, all of our visit experiences, including Candidate Weekend, will be virtual this year.
Candidate Weekend has been a unique part of the NYU Abu Dhabi admissions process since the very first applications to NYU Abu Dhabi were submitted more than 10 years ago. For the 2020-2021 cycle, our event will look a little different this year, but as ever it will be a chance for you to get a glimpse into what the academic and social experience is like in NYU Abu Dhabi's global community, and learn more about the cosmopolitan city of Abu Dhabi.
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 2020-2021 application cycle are:
● Early Decision I – December 4-7, 2020
● Early Decision II – February 5-8, 2021
● Regular Decision – March 12-15, 2021
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 4 and 6 live sessions over the course of 3 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.
