How ISSOS Works

All students attending ISSOS at Yale choose one academic and one elective to follow for the duration of the three week program. In addition students will benefit from our all inclusive and exciting activities, cultural trips and workshops.


Our high quality academic summer school programs are designed to cater specifically to the needs of international students. Classes meet daily for three hours and unlike other summer schools, we offer limited places in order to guarantee that all our students will benefit from small class sizes and individual attention.


Each student combines his or her academic summer school program option with one of our unique, in-depth elective summer school courses, which are timetabled four afternoons per week. These fun-filled and action-packed courses enable students to discover and participate in exciting subjects while gaining new skills.


In addition to our exceptional academic summer school programs and exciting afternoon elective courses, students will also benefit from a broad ranging and all-inclusive summer school activities program and will enjoy cultural trips, allowing them to get to know the surrounding area.
