Approved Programs

Yale faculty and staff have approved the following programs for Light Fellows to pursue intensive Chinese language study. These sites were selected for their academic rigor immersive learning environments but all have their own unique characteristics. Depending on your academic and personal goals, you might find that a certain program is better suited to your needs than others. Carefully review the page for each approved site for any specific notes or requirements. 

Tip: The approved language levels below indicate the level (year) of language study approved at each program.In general, after L1/L2 at Yale, you will be placed in 2nd year at our approved programs; after L3/L4, you will be placed in 3rd year; if you are taking an L5 class, you should consider programs with options for 4th year and above. Heritage track students may be placed higher at certain programs.  You will not know your actual placement until you take the placement test at each program.  If you have specific questions about your possible placement, please contact the language program directly. 

Due to the possibility of travel restrictions, the Light fellowship has approved the Middlebury Language Schools in Vermont for Summer 2022. At this time, Mainland China continues to be closed to short-term foreign language study students. As such, many of these programs remain cancelled until the visa situation becomes more clear.
