This study abroad program is run by the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) and Yale’s Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (PMC)—a world-class research center in central London. This program is an exciting opportunity for undergraduates to take interdisciplinary Yale courses abroad to explore the arts, politics and culture in Britain, and through its diasporic and global histories.

Coursework & Credit

Courses change each term and are in humanities subjects, including art history, history, literature, politics and architecture. Courses make use of the collections and resources (museums, archives, public spaces) in London and elsewhere in the UK to explore different facets of the UK’s identity, impact and culture, both local and global. The courses you will take are Yale courses and earn Yale credit. They will appear on your Yale transcript as any other courses you take at Yale. The course titles and grades will appear and will be factored into your Yale GPA.

They are offered as small seminar classes and instructors include Yale University professors and world-leading academics, writers and thinkers from the UK. Courses are experiential and designed to ensure a significant amount of time is spent learning outside of the classroom. Day trips, visits to museums/sites/organisations and guest speakers are a key part of their delivery. 


  • Spring term: open to undergraduate students in their sophomore spring, junior spring, or senior spring. This is the only study abroad option for your senior spring term.
  • Summer program: open to students who have completed their first, second or third year at Yale. The program is open to all majors.

Note: Interested seniors, please make sure you have sufficient credits to graduate, or will be able to accumulate them during your time in London, by consulting your Director of Undergraduate Studies and Residential College Dean.
