NYU Named #1 in Study Abroad and International Student Enrollment

Open Doors Report Logo

The Institute of International Education released it’s 2019 Open Doors report, which tracks both international students studying in the US and students from US institutions studying abroad. Once again, NYU has captured the top spot in each category, with growth in both areas from the year prior.  These outcomes demonstrate NYU’s critical role in shaping innovative international higher education in the 21st century.


Last academic year over 500 NYU Steinhardt students participated in short-term faculty-led study abroad programs in 16 countries.  365 undergraduates studied abroad for at least one semester at one of NYU’s global academic centers.  Additionally, 1388 visiting students from outside the U.S. are enrolled at the School; and students in the Shanghai-based MA TESOL program studied abroad here in New York City in a summer intensive to study cutting-edge teaching methods here in the U.S.  The Office of Global Affairs and Experiential Learning actively supports the flow of students, faculty, research and ideas on Washington Square and throughout our global community.  Contact us at to learn more about these and other international learning opportunities.
