Semester Study Abroad

Yale in London

At the Yale in London spring programme, Yale-NUS students will participate, alongside a small cohort of Yale undergraduates, in intensive, focused studies in the history of British art and architecture. Courses are taught by visiting Yale faculty and distinguished British academics. (President Pericles Lewis, for instance, taught a class there entitled “Modernist London: Literature and the Arts” in the spring of 2011.) The programme is offered through and held at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, an educational charity that is part of Yale University and that works closely with the Yale Center for British Art. More information can be found here.

For reference, the information on the courses available for Spring 2020 is Yale in London Spring 2020.

Besides classes from Monday through Thursday (usually in the mornings), the programme also integrates numerous field trips within and beyond London to museums, galleries, and historic houses. Further, drama courses involve visits to everything from top West End plays to small, fringe productions, as well as lectures by and conversations with actors, directors, and playwrights. And since there are usually no classes on Fridays (unless due to rescheduling needs), many students take short trips around and even away from London during the weekends.

Number of Spots for Yale-NUS Students for Sem 2: 3 – 4 in Semester 2 only (not available in Semester 1)
