Requirements for admission to Yale University for foreign students


Applicants from all over the world dream of going to Yale University - one of the oldest universities in America, created by Harvard graduates who remained dissatisfied with the educational system, back in 1701. There are no clear specialties - students choose disciplines for study independently, but such freedom is limited: the choice is available during the first 2 weeks of each semester. Students are required to choose subjects among educational fields (art, humanities, engineering) and among skills (logic, learning foreign languages).

Why do tens of thousands of applicants want to enroll at Yale?

People living in the USA and in other countries on all continents dream of entering Yale University. The number of foreign students studying here is almost 20%, and the number of countries from which students come is more than 100. The Yale University diploma has weight when looking for work in the largest companies in the world, in the research, medical, legal and engineering industries.

Yale is considered the most beautiful among all universities in the world: low buildings, green spaces, recreation areas, lawns. Public transport runs through the university, and its work does not stop almost around the clock - this is convenient for students spending a lot of time in libraries in preparation for scientific research. Libraries themselves are open until morning.

The university’s website contains information about teachers, their research and achievements - it helps to select the necessary disciplines from the complete list. You can apply not only for undergraduate studies, but also for graduate studies and receive a doctorate. The educational process is almost half based on writing scientific papers that can make a student famous and successful during their studies.

Yale University is also known for its several discoveries that have made people's lives better:

  1. Identification of a special fungus that feeds on plastic, which will allow the processing of plastic waste on all continents, improving the ecological situation of the planet as a whole.
  2. Creating antibodies that improve the human immune system - soon, humanity will learn to treat cancer and HIV thanks to researchers from Yale.
  3. Finding a drug that slows down the development of Alzheimer's disease and reduces the symptoms of the disease - this terrible disease becomes treatable.
  4. The restructuring of bacterial DNA using E. coli as an example is an innovative way to fight many diseases without antibiotics and other drugs.
