Yale Study Abroad

The application period and general information for Summer 2015 is coming soon!

Yale Summer Session offers students the intellectual challenge they expect from Yale in classrooms that spill out onto the streets of the world. First-hand experience of foreign cultures is a basic component of a Yale education: it not only complements the student's academic study of international topics, but is also fundamental to the student's own personal development as a global citizen. We hope that studying with Yale Summer Session will mark the beginning of a lifetime of encounters with members of the global community.
