Israel has a long tradition of academic excellence, boasting world class universities, colleges and research institutions. Israeli higher education institutions provide a diversity of academic programs in English for international students at the Bachelor and Master’s degree level ranging from short-term courses to full degree programs. Israeli Institutions also welcome international students and researchers for PhD and Post-Doctoral research and assign them with leading researchers in the field.
All of these are supervised by the Council for Higher Education, the state body responsible for Israel’s higher education system. All Israeli universities and 41 of the colleges are publically funded, while 13 colleges are privately funded.
