Hebrew University of Jerusalem 
Location: Jerusalem
Year Established: 1918
Student population: 23,000
Hebrew University of Jerusalem is Israel’s highest ranked university and leading research institution. Albert Einstein was one of its founders and it’s recognised internationally for its research excellence – it’s one of the top universities in Europe for winning competitive grants for young researchers and has produced 8 Nobel Prizes as well as Fields Medals and the Israel Prize.
There are three campuses in Jerusalem: Mount Scopus for humanities and social sciences, Edmond J Safra Campus for sciences and the Ein Karem Campus for medical sciences. There are great sporting facilities, among the best in the country, as well as 11 libraries, several computer centres and numerous student activities including social, cultural, artistic and spiritual opportunities.
Unique characteristics
The University stresses excellence and offers a wide range of study opportunities in the humanities, social sciences, science and medicine. Its world class exchange programs offer both theoretical and practical instruction and you’ll have the chance to study Hebrew.
Jerusalem is a centre of world religion and is one of the holiest cities for Jews, Christians and Muslims. The Old City is a must-see pilgrimage destination, full of sacred buildings and religious relics where you can touch the stones that prophets, kings and crusaders touched thousands of years ago. With all the exotic attractions of the Middle East, including souks and spice markets, Jerusalem also offers modern dining and nightlife as well as the incredible Israel Museum and Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial.
