International Applicants

Calling storytellers far and wide!

Each year Tisch Drama welcomes a student body that is rich with a variety of artistic, cultural, and life perspectives. As we endeavor to train artists with a global awareness, our international students contribute greatly to the department's collective voice. We welcome you to share your unique story and become part of those we tell.

We're coming to Asia!

Remember to book an artistic review session after you have submitted your NYU application!


STEP 2: Artistic Review

Once you have submitted the Common Application, you can schedule your artistic review.

International applicants are always welcome to do their artistic review in person

This year we will be in London, Shanghai and Buenos Aires, along with New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami.

If you cannot travel to one of the cities listed, you are welcome to submit a digital artistic review. We take digital submissions just as seriously as in-person artistic reviews.


Do your best. Give it all you've got in your digital artistic review and Skype interview (and essays of course) because passion and hard work are key elements at the Tisch School of the Arts.

Last year, applications came from these wonderful places—both above and below!

The tiny-print countries in the word cloud are: Argentina, Austria, Barbados, Belarus, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saint Lucia, Slovenia, Swaziland, and Sweden. Amazing.

Welcome, International Applicants!
