If you are an advanced graduate student who would like to study at Hebrew University through the Rothberg International School (RIS) for a semester or year, you can apply to one of the programs available for visiting researchers. These programs are geared toward those who are in the advanced stages of their graduate studies and who seek to deepen their knowledge in their chosen field of research.
HebrewU offers two distinct programs:
If you are pursuing your Ph.D. and wish to take courses in your field of interest, you may apply as a visiting research student. You’ll also enjoy student privileges, including use of the libraries and academic advising.
If you are an advanced M.A. or doctoral candidate who has completed your coursework and are working full-time on your thesis or dissertation, you may apply as a visiting research fellow. While you cannot take courses – with the exception of Modern Hebrew and an advanced tutorial for additional fees – you’ll enjoy student privileges, including use of the libraries and academic advising.
Apply now to become a student researcher or a research fellow at RIS.
We offer courses and programs in a variety of fields, with a focus on social and political sciences, Israel and the Middle East, languages, religion, fine and performing arts, business and legal studies, and STEM.
