Freshman Orientation

Saturday, August 20th, 2016 - Friday, August 26, 2016

All NYU Shanghai first-year students will be required to participate in a weeklong orientation program. Orientation week will not only prepare students for the transition to NYU Shanghai’s academic environment through discussions, seminars, guest speakers, placement examinations, language preparation, registration, and academic advisement, but also for the transition to a new living environment through fun events, games and tours with your new peer students. During and after the orientation week, you will also have opportunities to engage with upper-class students from NYU’s campus in New York City and NYU Abu Dhabi who are studying away in Shanghai. Details of the orientation arrangement will be provided over the summer.
