With the world becoming increasingly interconnected, the pursuit of higher education is transcending borders like never before. More and more students are choosing to expand their academic horizons internationally. An exciting and enriching opportunity awaits high school graduates seeking an international BA degree at a world-class university. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem offers students a unique experience that combines academic excellence with Jewish heritage and vibrant campus life, in one of the world’s most inspiring locations – Jerusalem.


A Tailored Academic Experience

At Hebrew University’s (HUJI) Rothberg International School, international students learn from leading experts, gain real-world experience, and develop the skills to thrive professionally. A range of flexible, 3-year multidisciplinary BA degree programs are offered in English, allowing international students to reap the benefits of earning a degree in Israel while studying in their native tongue. By choosing two out of three fields of specialization – liberal arts, business, and English – students design a double-major degree tailored to their academic pursuits.

Through stimulating courses, study tours, and internships, participants gain practical experience in Jerusalem, a living laboratory and their second classroom. In addition, they join a thriving community of international students from 90+ countries and benefit from personalized support, social activities and trips designed to complement their studies and immerse them in Israeli culture.

Program Highlights

As one of the world’s top-100 universities, HUJI offers international students a premier education that is recognized globally, opening doors to professional opportunities across diverse fields. One of the program’s greatest advantages is its accelerated pace, enabling students to complete their double-major degree in just three years and gain a head start toward advanced studies or an entry-level job.

Depending on the combination, some of the tracks are offered in Israel exclusively at Hebrew University. In addition, affiliation with HUJI’s renowned faculties of social sciences and humanities, as well as the AACSB-accredited Hebrew University Business School, gives students exposure to some of the world’s leading researchers in their fields. They’ll be inspired to think unconventionally and discover the power of their ideas, while learning in a setting that drives excellence.
