Pre-Departure Orientation Recap & Make-Up Quiz

For those who could not attend the in-person orientation, we missed you. There were some great questions and discussions with some Abu Dhabi degree students and a returned study away student.  This interactive session covered everything you need to know as you prepare to study away next semester.

While there is no way to replicate that experience, we are providing this NYU Abu Dhabi Study Away Handbook. Those of you who were not at the in-person session, please be sure to read through the handbook in its entirety and complete this mandatory quiz to test your knowledge and make sure you know the essential information! If you were at the in-person session, you can use this handbook to refresh your memory on everything we discussed.

Some key points to remember from the orientation:

  • On-site orientation is Mandatory! All students must arrive on January 20. Please plan to fly into the Abu Dhabi airport.
  • Please note that housing is ONLY available during the dates of the program, January 20 – May 18!
  • All class attendance and course related field trips are mandatory.  Do not book personal travel until you have arrived and confirmed your syllabi.
  • Bring all the prescription drugs you will need for your entire stay. Make sure you talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for any medication you take regularly for the full 4 months. Do NOT ship medication overseas.

If you have any questions or concerns after you have read through the presentation, feel free to email me.  To be put in touch with an NYU Abu Dhabi alum, email
