Our courses bring together British art, history, and culture to explore Britain’s identity and impact, both local and global, from the medieval period to today.
In London, you will have a unique opportunity to engage in stimulating discussion with leading academics from Yale and the UK, in lively seminars and tutorials.
While on the program, you will be taken beyond the traditional classroom into the rich and vibrant environment of London, where you will have the opportunity to look at great works of art in museums, galleries, historic palaces and houses, watch new and legendary actors treading the boards in the theatre district of the West End, and explore the ancient streets of the city itself.
Yale in London offers you an exciting social program that will not only include classic British pastimes such as afternoon tea and football (that’s soccer!) but that will also immerse you in the experience of living in, and enjoying, one of the world’s great cities .
The program also includes two residential trips (one trip in each of the summer sessions) that will take you and your classmates outside London and into the rest of the United Kingdom. Past trips have seen students hiking in the Welsh mountains, exploring ancient ruins such as Stonehenge and West Kennet Longbarrow, and investigating the sociology of tourism in Edinburgh.

Yale's Home Away from Home
Courses are offered with full Yale credit and the program is open to all years and majors.
If you have already studied abroad and have no more transfer credits left, you can study abroad again in London. If you are in STEM, Yale in London is a great way for you to earn a humanities credit while studying abroad.
If you are enrolled at Yale-NUS, the program is an ideal option for your sophomore spring semester.
