Study Abroad with New York Film Academy

NYFA provides U.S. regionally accredited transcripts for study abroad students

New York Film Academy College of Visual & Performing Arts' International Division

Through a partnership with Endicott College, eligible students who study abroad at our programs in Florence, Paris, Beijing, Shanghai, and Gold Coast have the opportunity to receive U.S. regionally accredited transcripts.*


Through the New York Film Academy's rich variety of intensive international programs and exciting locations, students form deep and lasting connections with societies and cultures around the world. The journey students embark on provides them the opportunity to learn about their new environment, integrate into another culture, and develop their own personal growth and identity through the exploration of the visual and performing arts. Ultimately, when enrolling in a study abroad program at NYFA, their experience will shape and change their lives for years to come.

NYFA’s wide variety of dynamic international locations and intensive visual and performing arts programs has placed us among the most popular programs for both U.S. study abroad students and international students from around the globe. Join us at any of our study abroad locations for a semester, academic year abroad, intersession, or summer program that suits your creative needs.


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 not 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.


NYFA’s Study Abroad Department is committed to providing the most hands-on visual and performing arts programs at premier locations worldwide. Through our innovative curriculum and philosophy of learning by doing, our study abroad and international students have the opportunity to form unique collaborations as they study under our world-class faculty of active industry professionals to develop real-world skills and create their own original work with state-of-the-art equipment.

NYFA study abroad programs range from one week to one year in length at our permanent international locations: established NYFA campus Gold Coast, Australia; and choice facilities in Florence, Italy; Paris, France; and Beijing, China. NYFA runs occasional programs at additional satellite locations including Amsterdam, Netherlands and more.

All NYFA international locations offer our signature intensive short-term programs in filmmaking and acting for film, while our Australia campuses also offer programs in photography, producing, screenwriting, 3D animation and visual effects, and more. Contact us at or call us at +1-212-674-4300 for more information on current locations and programs, and be sure to ask about earning U.S. college credit through our exciting partnership with Endicott College.
