Professional Development Opportunities

Professional Development Opportunities, known as PDOs, are specific on-campus professional development experiences that may be related to the student’s academic course of study or potential career path. A PDO opportunity is not an employment arrangement.

NYU Florence offers PDO opportunities at Villa La Pietra, the Digital Studio, the Office of Academic Support, the Office of Student Life, and the NYU Florence Sustainability Team. See below for a link to a description of the PDO opportunities offered in each office as well as the Application Form.


All students enrolled at NYU Florence who are interested in an on-campus PDO are encouraged to apply.

Please note that there are a limited number of scholarships called Global Learning Awards available for financially eligible NYU Students who have been selected for a PDO. Visit the Global Learning Award page for more information.

How to Apply

The DEADLINE for PDO applications is Tuesday, January 31, 2023 at 3pm CET.
