New York University Abu Dhabi - a Global Education for the Leaders of Tomorrow
New York University Abu Dhabi ? a Global Education for the Leaders of Tomorrow
By Suzanne Rentsch, Head of Student Pathways
NYU Abu Dhabi is changing the way higher education is experienced in the 21st century, as I found out when I visited Abu Dhabi last month. It is the first liberal arts and science college (with engineering) in the Middle East that is part of a major US research university. NYUAD opened in 2010 and in 2014 moved to a new state-of-the-art campus on Saadiyat Island.
NYUAD is a highly selective liberal arts college, and a world centre for advanced research and scholarship where the curriculum is fully integrated and connected to NYU in New York. Together, NYU New York and NYU Abu Dhabi form the backbone of a unique global network university, with faculty and students from New York and Abu Dhabi spending "semesters away" at one or more of NYU's study-abroad sites on five continents.
The students at NYUAD do some amazing things: live in the world's newest capital of culture and ideas; research alongside internationally renowned faculty; study with peers from around the world; explore NYU's global network including Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Sydney, Tel Aviv and Washington DC; shape the future; and dream big.
The undergraduate curriculum is rigorous in its offerings and provides a unique conceptualisation of a global education for the 21st century.
In keeping with their commitment to providing an engaging and challenging liberal arts and science education, NYU Abu Dhabi will always have a small student body and a student-to-faculty ratio that will never exceed 8:1 (it is currently 4:1).
Admission to NYU Abu Dhabi is highly competitive, but with the support of Radford?s nomination, top Radford candidates could be part of their exceptional student body.
Students can find out more about the curriculum, nomination process, typical nominee attributes and the financial support that is available by attending a lunchtime meeting on Wednesday 25 March at 1:10pm-1:30pm in Room 58.To Home
