Short Term Study Abroad
(J-Term, Spring Break, Summer)
Due to Tandon's sometimes strict degree requirements, students may need to adhere to a strict four-year plan, making it difficult to study abroad for an entire semester. If this is the case, yet you want to participate in an international experience prior to graduation, you may want to look into studying abroad through one of the many Short Term Study Abroad programs available at NYU.
