New York University (NYU) Abu Dhabi is a highly selective, four-year, Liberal Arts and Science College located in the city of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, opening in September 2010. This is a full, four-year undergraduate program; students enter through the Abu Dhabi campus, and graduate from the Abu Dhabi campus with a New York University degree. Although a new campus, NYU Abu Dhabi is closely interconnected to all of the expertise, support and resources found at NYU in New York City as well as NYU’s global sites on five continents.
NYU Abu Dhabi offers an extraordinary environment of internationally diverse, high-caliber students and a rigorous curriculum taught by distinguished professors. Classes will be taught by faculty who are leaders in their fields, with small classes and low faculty-to-student ratios allowing for valuable mentorship opportunities.
Admission to NYU Abu Dhabi is highly selective. Students are admitted based on the overall strength of their application, including academic excellence, extracurricular activities, recommendations, and a demonstrated interest in global citizenship, service, and leadership.
