January and Spring Break 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.

These intensive January or spring break, graduate-level study abroad courses count toward your course load and financial aid for those terms.

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.
