Ranked among the world’s leading universities, at the Hebrew University Israelis of all backgrounds receive a university education where excellence is emphasized; where advanced, postgraduate study and research are encouraged; and where special programs and conferences attract students and academics from around the world.

Since Israel is a very small country, you can easily travel by bus through the whole country. Visiting the Golan Heights in the North and the Negev desert in the South is really worth it!
