Global Programs

    The Office of Global Programs hosts a variety of info sessions and events throughout the academic year. These in-person and virtual sessions are opportunities for undergraduate students to explore their study away opportunities at NYU and gain a better understanding of the requirements and planning necessary for a successful study away semester. Visiting students (non-NYU) are welcomed to attend where noted, and some sessions will be designed specifically for the parents/guardians of students planning to study away.
