Summer Abroad

Graduate Study Abroad Opportunities

The University is continuing to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on future travel. In the event that travel is not possible, Steinhardt Global Affairs will work with faculty on a case-by-case basis to explore alternatives.

The application for Summer 2022 programs will open in early spring.

These intensive summer graduate-level study abroad courses are an excellent way to gain an invaluable international perspective in your field of study. They count toward your course load and financial aid for the summer term.

Courses are open to graduate students at all NYU schools and most are open to senior-level undergraduates with permission of the instructor. Non NYU students and professionals holding a bachelor's degree or higher are also welcome to apply.
