With no grades or course credit, YYGS encourages students to approach all aspects of the program creatively and with the understanding that they set their own limits. Students receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the session. Living in Yale’s residential college gives students a taste of life at Yale University.
Yale Young Global Scholars offers nine interdisciplinary sessions at Yale’s historic campus in New Haven, CT, and Yale Center Beijing offers YYGS-Beijing in their state of the art facilities in Beijing, China. All sessions share a single application, but students can indicate preferences for up to three sessions on the application. Students may only attend one session each summer.
The program runs in June-August 2019 and includes sessions in nternational affairs and globalisation, sustainable development, literature, sciences, politics, law and economics, creative arts and media, and many more!
