Short-term Programs

NYU Study Away Programs in Shanghai

NYU Shanghai regularly partners with other NYU schools to host short-term study away programs in Shanghai for graduate students. These programs can run at any time during the year, although they are usually scheduled during January term or summer term. Typically, these programs consist of short, immersive, for-credit academic experiences that explore current issues and events relevant to China and the world at large. All together, these programs bring more than 300 graduate students to NYU Shanghai every year.
