This page is designed to give you a quick overview of the blog structure and its functionality.  The blog is a one-stop-shop site where you will receive all information necessary to successfully prepare for your semester away.  You are responsible for all information posted.  Please start here and watch the below video so you understand how to best navigate the blog.

If you prefer to read through the information covered in the video, a PDF version can be found here.

Lastly, as you get ready for your semester abroad with NYU you’ll receive all sorts of communication from our office and possibly other NYU offices.  To make sure we are all on the same page I thought it would be good to point out some of the frequently used terminology of the university.

NYU Terminology

  • Site Representative –each program has someone in the New York office that is responsible for working with those students as they prepare for their semester abroad.

  • Admitted Students Blog – That’s what you’re reading now! We often reference the Admitted Students blog as it has a list of to do’s, links to forms, and deadlines. It’s going to be your main sources of information so make sure you become familiar with it.

  • NYUHome ( is a web portal that provides access to many university services.  As a student participating in NYU Study Abroad, there are two services in particular that you will use:

  • NYU e-mail, which is where we will begin to send important announcements (you can set up mail forwarding to a different address if you prefer; for instructions, see here).

  • Albert, which you will use to register for classes (more info about registration to come!). It can be found under the “Academics” tab – click “Albert Login.”

Students should feel free to post questions on the blog, especially broad questions that apply to the larger New York group. I will do my best to respond to inquiries in a timely manner, but I will always respond fastest via email.
