English Language Course & Placement Exam

English Language Course

This course is for Preparatory Program (Mechina) students who did not attend a high school where the primary language of instruction is English.

Students with a very limited knowledge of English are required to take a summer course in basic English (the English Ulpan). Classes are held from July 9 to August 7 (Sunday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m-2:00 p.m.).

Satisfactory completion of the English Ulpan (minimum grade of 75) is a condition for continuing in the Preparatory Program (Mechina).

NOTE: The English Summer Ulpan begins four weeks before the Hebrew Summer Ulpan. Dormitories are generally not available during the English Ulpan.

Application Deadline: July 1, 2017

English Placement Test

This placement test is required for all students except high school graduates from  English-speaking countries and students who receive a grade of 134 on the English sub-section of the NITE Psychometric Entrance Test.

The English Placement Test has two parts:

  2. The second part of the English placement test is done at the Rothberg International School, on a number of given dates (below). Please update your advisor about which date is best for you.
