Mission & Vision

For over 40 years, the University of Haifa International School (UHIS) has successfully attracted students from around the world to study at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Today close to 1,000 students from over 40 different countries are enrolled annually in UHIS programs that are unique in their integrated approach towards the international student.



3 Guiding Principles

  • Academic Excellence

Offer academically demanding programs that will challenge students and expand their intellectual horizons in new subject areas as well as provide progress in their major area of study.

  • Integration into Israeli Society

Meeting Israelis in the classroom, work with them through research, internship and volunteer opportunities and live alongside each other in the university dormitories.

  • Caring Community

Our staff is always available to help students and to serve as a 'family away from home' during their time in Haifa, for any type of need: academic, practical, cultural, personal.
