The University of Haifa's Fall 2021 semester is opening this coming October with classes conducted on campus and in-person.
The university works according to guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health. Depending on COVID levels in the country, there is always the possibility that there may be a return to hybrid or entirely online learning -- though we hope not. The intention on all levels of government, and in the universities, is to keep educational institutions open for in-person learning.
As a student at the University of Haifa's Study Abroad Program for a semester or year, you will have an experience that you will never forget! Our wide range of courses and special track programs fulfills any student's academic interest. Courses in the Study Abroad Program at the International School are taught in English by faculty from a variety of departments within the University of Haifa. All of our courses are academically accredited in accordance with the standards and criteria of North American and European universities.
