International Students

Leaving a familiar place to study in a new country is exciting, but it can also feel overwhelming. Liberal Studies  provides academic and social support to international students in the Core Program and Global Liberal Studies. Academic advisors, faculty mentors and student leaders help international students adjust to life at NYU and in New York City. As they engage with the community, international students have access to various supportive programs and university resources.
