Program Description:

Hebrew University of JerusalemHebrew University of Jerusalem

Founded in 1918 and officially opened in 1925, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJ) is the second oldest university, after the Technion, but is ranked as the top university in Israel. The first Board of Governors included Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Martin Buber, and Chaim Weizmann.  

The main campus is at Mount Scopus in the north-east of Jerusalem and includes the Rothberg International School.  During the Arab-Israeli War in 1948, the Mr Scopus campus was cut off from the Israel and a second campus was built at Givat Ram.  It was not until the reunification of Jerusalem after the Yom Kippur War of 1967 that the University returned to Mt Scopus.

The University now has six campuses, seven faculties, 14 schools and a student population of approximately 23,000.  Four of Israel's prime ministers are alumni of the Hebrew University. In the last decade, seven researchers and alumni of the University received the Nobel Prize and one was awarded the Fields Medal.
