Yale in London offers Yale and Yale-NUS College undergraduates the opportunity to take a spring or summer programme at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art in London, United Kingdom. The Centre is located in one of central London's finest Georgian squares in Bloomsbury, close to the British Museum and the University of London. We are also nearby to London's many art galleries, museums, theatre, and historic architecture.
The programme takes advantage of its location and teaching is enriched with the unique opportunities the Centre and London has to offer. Field work visits are an important and compulsory part of all of the courses and every term includes a residential trip outside London.
Yale in London is a Yale programme and courses carry one Yale College credit each. Students do not have to apply for a junior term abroad or transfer credits to participate in Yale in London. The programme is open to all majors, even if you haven't declared a major yet. Literature and drama classes fall under Group I of Yale academic subjects. Courses in history, history of art, and architecture fall under Group II. Although, Yale in London courses are officially listed as British Studies courses, you should speak to your DUS if you are interested in cross-listing your credits. If you are unsure of how our course schedule will affect your major, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
