International Students

A very warm welcome to our international students!

You’ve shown ambition and courage by coming to a new country to pursue your dreams, and we are very glad you came.  We know that along with the many opportunities at NYU and in New York City come many challenges. We can answer your questions about visa regulations, English language proficiency and support, career development, opportunities for meeting other students, and more. Our goal is to make your time at NYU fulfilling and pleasurable.

Here are just some of the resources available to you.

Office of Global Services

If you have questions about your visa status, work permission, applying for a social security number or any other immigration-related question, the Office of Global Services (OGS) can help. OGS holds walk-in advising hours, so drop by if you need any help or simply have a question.

Writing Center

If you are looking for assistance in writing, the NYU Writing Center can help you.  Bring in a draft version of an assignment and sit down one-on-one with one of their writing tutors.  You may schedule an appointment online at (Washington Square campus) or (Brooklyn campus).

Tisch Office of Career Development

If you have questions related to finding a job or internship, interviewing strategies, resume development or any concerns related to your career development, the Tisch Office of Career Development team can help you.  Come in during walk-in hours or schedule an appointment for one-on-one support.
