Welcome to the NYU College of Global Public Health

We are extremely excited to have you join our community! New York University is home to one of the highest number of international students in the U.S. with over 5,000 international students and scholars from over 130 different countries. As International students, you will learn to navigate through a different set of tasks as you transition into your studies at New York University.  

The College of Global Public Health is prepared to assist you during this transition!

There are unique instances that will stand out to you as an international student - instances that catch your eye as you go through the next few years. Sometimes they will make you roll your eyes, sometimes they will make you laugh, and other times they will make your jaw drop from the surprise.

Just remember one important thing: differences make for a good conversation topic! You should feel free to explore your field of study, your skills and talents by participating in various NYU GPH events and sponsored activities. Your academic success is facilitated by engaging in activities and extending your learning experience within and beyond the classroom walls.

The Office of Global Services (OGS) will be your guide in handling all immigration matters. We suggest that you read through the OGS website carefully, including the FAQ section. This will ensure that you are completely prepared when you begin your studies in the fall.

Watch the three videos attached to find out what you need to do as a newly admitted international student both before and when you arrive and for employment options for NYU International Students. In addition, the OGS Arrival Checklist is attached at the bottom of this email and should be consulted before arriving to New York.

We want you to have an easy start, and by taking care of everything listed in this section, we believe you will!

Please continue to check your NYU email (NetID@nyu.edu) as we will send more information/dates about upcoming events.

In the meantime, save the date for the International Student Orientation with OGS at GPH on Tuesday, August 29 at 4:00 PM at 726 Broadway, 7th Floor to learn the basics of keeping legal in the US as an F-1 or J-1 international student, employment in the US, cultural adjustment and coping skills, US classroom culture, safety and security, and more. 

If needed, do not hesitate to email us at cgph.incomingstudents@nyu.edu. We look forward to seeing you soon.

All the best,

NYU GPH Student Affairs Team
