It was wonderful seeing all of you at the Pre-Departure Orientation on November 5th! There were funny videos, a quick history of Spain, and an excellent Q&A with the Global Peer Mentors. This interactive session covered everything you need to know as you prepare to study away next semester.
I am providing an online version of the presentation here as a helpful reminder of the important details we covered.
I have also shared a quiz with the students who could not attend to test their knowledge and make sure they know the essential information!
Some key points to remember from the orientation:
- All students must arrive on January 22, ideally between 9am and 12pm. Late arrival is NOT permitted!
- Please note that housing is ONLY available during the dates of the program, January 22 – May 12! If you arrive early or leave late, you are responsible for your own accommodations.
- All class attendance and course related field trips are mandatory. Do not book personal travel until you have arrived and confirmed your syllabi.
- Bring all the prescription drugs you will need for your entire stay. Make sure you talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for any medication you take regularly for the full 4 months. Do NOT ship medication overseas.
If you have any questions or concerns after you have read through the presentation, feel free to email me. To be put in touch with an NYU Madrid alum, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
