Preparing to Go Abroad
NYU organizes pre-departure orientation sessions at the Washington Square campus prior to your departure. At these sessions you will have the opportunity to speak with local staff, recent study abroad students, and your peers. Admitted students also receive regular emails and blog updates from the Global Programs Student Services staff. Students are always free to contact their site representative, the NYU Office of Global Programs Academic Support staff, or the NYUAD Office of Global Education with questions.
Following your admission notification you will receive a number of communications from the NYU Office of Global Programs. These mailings include information about travel, insurance, passports, visas, and more. You will also be asked to complete a Housing Preferences Form, a Travel Release Form, a Medical History and Release Form, a Health and Accident Insurance Coverage Form, a Media Release, and an Arrival Form. All forms must be completed and returned to the Office of Global Programs in New York prior to departure.
