BENEFITS OF NYFA STUDY ABROAD
NYFA arts education is valuable for students in many disciplines — assisting them to learn better storytelling skills, develop confidence in giving presentations, enhance their life skills, and strengthen their ability to become better listeners — proficiencies that are applicable in all aspects of academic study and for future professional pursuits.
The multiplicity of global students means that U.S. students will study in an American “bubble.” The NYFA milieu offers a true international experience, thanks to the richness of the convergence of so many varied cultures. U.S. students will interact with locals to organize their productions, will work with many students for whom English is a second language, and will live and work with NYFA students from many other countries — learning from them, while also offering insights into America and its diversity.
Because of NYFA’s international enrollment, students are able to practice other languages and work together with international peers. Study abroad at NYFA provides a true cross-cultural experience.
