During your first few days in Paris, you will attend orientation to help you get acclimated to NYU, NYU Paris, and the city.

By the time you arrive in Paris, you'll have already registered for your courses. NYU Paris faculty and staff will be on hand for academic advisement, to help you change your schedule if the need arises, and to serve as guides during your first few days. Through a carefully planned orientation program, you'll attend information sessions, tour parts of the city, and begin the required two-week Workshop in French Language and Culture, which provides an intensive introduction to the French language and a grand introduction to French culture and your new city, including an excursion outside of Paris. Textbooks for your courses may be purchased at the center and at local bookstores.
