The Yale University

Are you still contemplating?, or perhaps you are still doubting the professionalism and competence of Yale University lecturers?, here is a brief overture on this university.

The Yale university is one of the greatest universities in the USA and is part of the Ivy League schools. The Ivy League schools are synonymous with prestige and academic excellence.

The dream of many high school students is to study at Ivy League schools because professional success is almost guaranteed by studying at these universities.

The university is ranked among the top universities in the world because of its academic brilliance.

The university stands at 15th in the world by top Universities and 3rd in the US by the US News because of its prestige and an excellent academic standard. Yale University is the third oldest university in the US.


Scholarship awards

Furthermore, Yale University offer a number of scholarships in the form of financial aid. Approximately 63% of undergraduate students, including international, received financial aid.

For graduate scholarships, students have to apply to the departments of their choice because funding policies are different for each department. Graduate funding is determined by individual departments, not the university.

Also, PhD. students are included in these scholarships schemes. Every student receive scholarship which covers full tuition scholarship, hospitalization fellowship, and an annual stipend.


Dormitory And Faculty Settings

In addition, Yale encompasses a wide array of centers and programs, libraries, museums, and administrative support offices. Approximately 11,250 students attend Yale.

Besides these On-campus housing for graduate students is limited here and is not guaranteed. The school give options like Elm Campus where you can rent Yale owned off-campus housing.

Similarly, hostels like Berkeley Apartments, Divinity, Esplanade Apartments, Whitehall Apartments, etc. recommended living options

Subsequently, With a total of 4410 faculty members, Yale University have a faculty to student ratio of 1:6 which is enough to get you awestruck. Over 75% of their classes have less than 20 students which create an intimate bond between the teacher and the students. The classes can be rigorous and stressful.

In conclusion, the institution is one of the best in the world with it high academics performance statistics and an around accommodating and environment friendly community. All the departments are equally stressful and equally good.

In my opinion, this is not just a university but rather a community built on the connection of more than one country.
