Am I eligible?
The program is open to any undergraduate currently enrolled at Yale College or Yale-NUS College. There are no prerequisites. Students from any major and any year may apply.
What will my semester look like?
Seminar style classes taught four days a week with frequent field trips and visits outside of the classroom. Each semester also includes a three day residential trip tied to one of your courses. The residential trip will take you and your classmates outside of London.
Will I get credit?
Yes, each course carries full Yale credit. Yale in London’s spring semester is equivalent to a semester of enrollment at Yale College and is not considered a Semester Abroad. Courses are typically listed as British Studies (BRST) but cross-listing is possible. Speak to your DUS if you’d like to cross-list a Yale in London course.
Yale-NUS students will need to transfer their credits after the conclusion of the semester. Please consult the CIPE office at Yale-NUS for more information on this process. Yale in London can assist students in obtaining transcripts for the transfer.
Can I choose which courses I take?
No, you must take all four courses on offer during the spring semester.
