Jerusalem Ulpan

Program dates: June 26 − July 31, 2017
(Check calendar for most recent dates)
Application deadline: May 26, 2017
Hours & credits: 140 academic hours; 7 credits

Due to the short duration of this ulpan, it is not possible to complete a full level. If you return to study at HebrewU’s Rothberg International School (RIS), you may have difficulty finding a suitable Hebrew class. Therefore, if you might want to continue to study at RIS, we recommend that you take the Summer Ulpan.

Classes at Levels Heh (advanced) and Vav (upper-advanced) are only available if enough students register. If there aren’t enough students, we may open one joint class for both levels.
