How to apply to NYU

This online event took place on 22 July. It was designed to help British and international students who are applying to or starting at US universities this autumn. This was a unique opportunity to get your questions answered by an admissions director from one of the US universities most popular with international students:


  • Lisa Mortini, International Admissions, NYU


  • How will COVID19 impact students at US universities this Fall?
  • Should 2020 entrants defer for a year?
  • How safe is it to study in the US?
  • Will admissions officers make allowances for lockdown when judging applications?
  • Will there be fewer international applicants this year?
