Undergraduate Summer Sessions


Summer Sessions 2021

NYU Shanghai offers two 6-week summer sessions in 2021. In each summer session, students have the opportunity to take courses in English covering a range of subject from Business to Computer Science to Social Science and Humanities. Additionally, intensive Chinese language courses are offered that give students the opportunity to improve their Chinese language skills. Students may take up to 8 credits per session. 

Summer Session I: Tuesday, May 25 - Friday, July 2, 2021

Summer Session II: Monday, July 5 - Friday, August 13, 2021

Distance Learning Courses
In an effort to contain COVID-19 cases, the Chinese government has temporarily suspended entry into the country by people without Chinese citizenship or green card status and Chinese embassies and consulates are not issuing student visas. We understand this puts some students and summer faculty in a position where they will not be able to secure visas and travel to Shanghai. As a result, we may have to convert some of the most immediately affected courses to digital learning courses. Please check this webpage to see which courses are currently planned to be taught remotely.
