Monday, August 26th, 2019 - Saturday, August 31st, 2019

All NYU Shanghai first-year students will be required to participate in Orientation Week.

This week will help you prepare for your academic transition into NYU Shanghai through workshops, discussions, placement exams, language preparation, and academic advising. It will also help you transition into living in a new environment and connect you with your peers with fun events, games, and tours.

During and after Orientation Week, you will also have opportunities to engage with upper-class study away students from NYU’s campuses in New York City and Abu Dhabi.

More details about Orientation Week will be provided in one of the summer newsletters from New Student Programs.
