All students at the Hebrew University, including part-time and external students, must have health insurance coverage for the period of their studies.
Unless otherwise noted, all nonIsraeli full-time students attending a semester/year program, an ulpan, or a summer program who pay tuition will receive health insurance for the period of their program, provided they meet the criteria. Students who remain in the University over the summer must go to the Finance Office to extend their policy (for a fee).
Students attending a special program that provides health insurance coverage will be required to sign a health insurance waiver upon arrival.
Part-time students taking individual courses in the divisions of Undergraduate Studies, Graduate Studies or Hebrew Language Instruction or the Preparatory Program must purchase health insurance for the period of their studies, including the break between semesters, if applicable.
Students who are Israeli citizens or new immigrants ( olim ) are personally responsible for joining an Israeli health fund ( kupat holim ) to assure their access to medical care. They must submit the Health Insurance Waiver.
