Yale University directly administers the program through the Yale Office of International Affairs. The members of the program leadership team are all employees of the university and most of our instructional support staff are Yale affiliates, including current Yale undergraduates, recent Yale College graduates, and Yale graduate students. Those few who are not Yale degree holders have backgrounds at schools like Harvard University, the University of Oxford, and Brown University. The program is highly selective and gives students an unforgettable summer experience. To give students room to flourish in a new learning environment and to explore new academic interests, YYGS does not offer course credit, nor do students receive any quantitative evaluation during or after the program.
