We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
One of the most famous cities in the world and the most populous city in the United States, New York City is situated on the USA’s East Coast. There are over 100 universities in the New York area, along with many other higher education institutions (the largest number of any US city) and over a million resident students.
Throughout its history New York has been an important gateway into the United States. This legacy of immigration has created a cosmopolitan city with a rich range of cultural heritages celebrated by different community traditions and public festivals.
Studying a Masters in New York will allow you to become part of this proud tradition of international travel and exchange, contributing your ideas to one of the world's busiest education hubs.
You'll also enjoy studying in one the most popular tourist destinations in the world, home to a range of famous buildings and landmarks, including the Empire State Building, the United Nations Headquarters, Times Square and, of course, the Statue of Liberty. There are plenty of spots in Central Park to enjoy a tranquil study break when the sun is shining, or you could find a cosy corner of the landmark New York Public Library Main Branch to do your reading.
New York has an unparalleled collection of museums, art galleries and cultural institutions to enjoy. From the thought-provoking MoMA and its cutting-edge contemporary art, to the masterpieces showcased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the wealth of fossils within the American Museum of Natural History, there’s enough to keep cultured Masters students occupied for years.
The sheer size and scope of New York means the city will offer you an unparalleled postgraduate study experience, whichever of its many universities you study at.
The oldest local university in New York is Columbia University, established in 1754. Columbia is a member of the prestigious Ivy League of eight American universities and is routinely ranked amongst the very best universities worldwide. It is famous as the site of numerous modern scientific and technological breakthroughs including the implementation of FM radio and the splitting of the atom.
Other famous universities in New York City include New York University (NYU) which was established in 1831 and usually ranks in the top 50 universities worldwide and the City University of New York (CUNY) which was founded in 1847 and is the city's public university system, comprising a number of associated institutions.
Postgraduate courses in New York are also available from the city's many other higher education providers, which include large universities as well as numerous smaller institutions offering specialised programmes.
New York’s Wall Street is one of the world’s great financial centres, offering a wealth of career opportunities for talented postgraduates. The city is also a major media hub, hosting the headquarters of many international news and entertainment organisations. New York has a reputation as a hotbed for tech start-ups that has earned it the Silicon Alley nickname.
