Professional Masters Programs
Professional masters programs — accredited both internationally and locally — offer ways through which knowledge development and capacity building can occur. NYUAD is working closely with NYU New York and NYU Shanghai to identify and develop such programs that will be of value to the UAE and its aspirations, locally, regionally, and globally. NYUAD's goal is to build an internationally recognized foundation of excellence in areas of importance to the future of the region. Degrees will be awarded by NYU.
Ph.D. Program in Chemistry
Students with a bachelor degree may apply using the NYU GSAS online application to apply for the Global Ph.D. program. All documentation and application fees will be the responsibility of the applicant.
Students who are exceptionally qualified and identify a strong interest in the fields of research offered by NYU Abu Dhabi faculty will be shortlisted for interview by NYU and NYUAD faculty. If a student is successful in this process and offered a doctoral position, the student will have the opportunity of a laboratory placement at NYU Abu Dhabi prior to the commencement of the first year of course work at NYUNY.
Students who successfully complete their course work and pass qualifying examinations will move to Abu Dhabi for the research phase of the doctoral program. At NYUAD students will work in world-class facilities in a purpose-built campus on Saadiyat Island with faculty who are leaders in their fields. They will also have the opportunity to work in NYU Abu Dhabi Institute centers and labs and faculty centers and labs. In close consultation with NYUAD and NYUNY faculty, students will follow a carefully designed plan of study to optimize the time they spend conducting course work in New York.
Chemistry students who do not already have a master's degree will be expected to complete the Ph.D. in a total of four years: one year of course work in New York and three years of research in Abu Dhabi. Global Ph.D. Fellows will be admitted with a four year funding package which provides full coverage of housing costs (that is, no rent will be charged), tuition, fees, health insurance in both New York and Abu Dhabi, as well as travel support and an additional stipend currently set at $30,000.
