What Is the Time Commitment for This Programme?
This is a residential programme based in London, planned over two weeks in July. All participants are expected to arrive in London on the Friday prior to the start of the programme and remain for the full two weeks, leaving during the weekend after the conclusion of the programme. There will be some opportunities for research and rest across the two weeks, but if you have any specific concerns about the programme do get in touch.
What Is the Cost to Me?
The Summer School is free for all participants, including some evening social events. The programme also provides the airfare for a round trip to London and accommodation for the duration of the two-weeks. Participants are expected to pay for their own meals while in London, though some meals will be included as part of the programme. If you have further questions, please do get in touch.
Will I Need a Visa for Entry to the UK?
Depending on your nationality, you may not need a visa to visit the UK. You should check if you need a visa on the Home Office website. If you have any questions or require assistance, please do get in touch.
Will I Need Health Insurance to Participate in the Programme?
All students enrolled in the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences are automatically covered by Yale’s emergency travel insurance, International SOS. Students who have the basic health plan from Yale Health may also have additional coverage. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have adequate coverage for your two-week stay in London. You can find out more about health insurance coverage on the Yale website.
How Will Coronavirus Impact This Summer’s Programme?
We are planning this summer’s Graduate Summer School to take place in person. However, the safety of our students and staff is of utmost importance and we are keeping a close eye on updates concerning international travel.
Yale students should refer to the Travel Policy for more information on the current rules and regulations in place for university-sponsored travel, including a self-assessment tool to help you prepare for your travel to London this summer.
We suggest that all Yale students refer to the Yale International Toolkit for more information on how to prepare for travel to London.
At the Paul Mellon Centre, participants should refer to our current guidance for visitors. Guidance specific to the Graduate Summer School will be sent to you prior to your arrival in London.
