As I mentioned in your “Welcome to NYU Shanghai” email, I am your NYC based site representative. This means that you can think of me as your primary contact for any Shanghai-related questions you may have before you leave for China. I am also in close communication with the Shanghai Global Affairs team based in NY (they help with Academics), as well as the site staff in Shanghai, who will assist you after you arrive.
Our partner office, the NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) will assist you with your immigration-related concerns. So while I cannot help you secure your visa, I can help you navigate all other steps you must take prior to your departure.
To guide you through the essential steps you must take before your semester away, I have created this blog. Each week I will share new posts covering everything from deadlines and course registration to flights, packing tips, and everything in between! Make sure to read all the posts to stay on top of your requirements! And feel free to share this blog with your families!
Congratulations again on your admission to NYU Shanghai Spring 2017!
