University of the People and NYU Abu Dhabi

Both New York University (NYU) and UoPeople believe in the value of education and its positive impact on individuals, communities and societies. Education is a key ingredient of world peace, vital to economic development and a pathway out of poverty. It is a right and not a privilege. NYU and UoPeople recognize the vast disparities in access to higher education both in the US and around the world. NYU and UoPeople believe in promoting access to higher education for students facing financial constraints and are agreed that UoPeople is a means to enable such access. NYU seeks to help UoPeople achieve its mission by providing support to UoPeople through the establishment of a collaboration. UoPeople seeks to assist NYU to reach students who would not otherwise be able to access NYU.

  • High performing students who have studied for at least one year at UoPeople and meet the standards of admission will be eligible to apply for admission to NYU Abu Dhabi. Successful applicants who qualified would also be eligible for financial aid to help enable them to attend.
  • UoPeople students will be eligible to apply to NYU upon completion of the equivalent of one year of undergraduate studies;
  • In appropriate cases, upon a review of the record by divisional deans at NYU, NYU will award transfer of credit for accepted students for the studies completed at UoPeople;
  • NYU will welcome applications from UoPeople graduates for NYU Master level programs, where these students meet NYU admissions standards.
