The Yale Visiting International Student Program (Y-VISP) is an honors program that invites high-achieving students from partner institutions to study at Yale. Y-VISP students become fully integrated members of the Yale community by taking courses alongside Yale students, participating in extracurricular organizations and events, and living among Yale students in the residential colleges.
Y-VISP invites top undergraduate students from partner institutions to study at Yale University. Selected Y-VISP students enjoy a deeply engaging academic experience as well as an energetic and stimulating life outside of the classroom. Y-VISP students are invited to take advantage of Yale's rich intellectual and social experiences, and, because of strong relationships among Y-VISP partner institutions, the students' contributions inside and outside of the classroom are felt long after students return to their home institutions.
Each year, Y-VISP makes a video that is a wonderful glimpse into the students' experiences at Yale. Click below to view the Y-VISP videos from the first four generations of students.
