Undergraduate Summer Sessions


Summer Sessions 2020

NYU Shanghai offers two 6-week summer sessions in 2020. There is also a separate 9-week Summer Chinese Immersion Program in which students study one year's worth of Chinese in 9 weeks. 

Summer Session I: Monday, May 25 - Friday, July 3, 2020

Summer Session II: Monday, July 6 - Friday, August 14, 2020

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. NYU Shanghai organizes weekend trips to explore other parts of China and also arranges tours around various Shanghai neighborhoods. Throughout, students benefit from access to NYU Shanghai’s world-class facilities and support from professors as well as full-time academic and student life staff. Students may take up to 8 credits per session. Non-Chinese citizens need to take at least 6 credits for visa compliance reasons.
