At NYU School of Professional Studies Tokyo we believe that learning is a journey. We need to understand your educational goals before helping you choose the best study path to take.
The Individual Advisement Session is an opportunity to have a one-to-one meeting with a student adviser to discuss your learning goals, understand your current proficiency, and consider the best program of study for you.
