Students can follow in the footsteps of American presidents and business leaders at our prestigious summer school at Yale.

An Ivy League university, ranked both the third best national University in the United States and the country’s third oldest higher education institution, Yale University is the perfect location for an Oxford Royale summer school in 2021.

About Yale University

Founded in 1701, the University has played host to many famous individuals in its time, including 60 Nobel laureates and world leaders including US presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Combining the prestigious setting of the Yale campus with the academic excellence of ORA’s courses ensures a rounded and culturally enriched programme.

Hillary Clinton (former US Secretary of State), Peter Mutharika (Malawian president), Harold Stanley (Morgan Stanley founder), Ben Silbermann (Pinterest CEO and co-founder) and Sonia Sotomayor (Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States) are among some of the extensive and notable world leader alumni. The impressive achievements of those at Yale are a testament to its extensive facilities and buildings, which ORA students are able to explore and enjoy throughout their stay.

Safety and security on campus

In the college, students are overseen by the Programme Director, who implements the day-to-day running of the programme. The Director is assisted by a team of Counsellors.

The Counsellors ensure that students are looked after pastorally, culturally and socially during their programme. Students are able to talk informally and frankly to the Counsellors in order to raise concerns or to discuss university applications.

Each campus has a few members of residential staff who live in the college throughout the programme and are able to assist students at any time of the day or night.
