שלום וברוכים הבאים (Shalom Oo-vrukhim Ha-baim). أهلاً و سهلاً (Ahlan wa Sahlan).
As mentioned in your “Welcome to NYU Tel Aviv” email, I am your NYU Tel Aviv Study Away Advisor. This means that you can think of me as your primary contact for any Tel Aviv-related questions you may have before you arrive. I am also in close communication with the site staff in Tel Aviv, who will ultimately 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!
On behalf of both the Office of Global Programs and NYU Tel Aviv, congratulations again on your admission! For tips on how to best navigate the blog, please Start Here!
