The Scopus Ulpan is an intensive Hebrew language course intended for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as adults with an academic background. This Ulpan is suitable for students interested in learning Hebrew during the month of August only, who are not planning to continue their Hebrew language studies at the Rothberg International School (RIS) during the coming academic year.

The Scopus Ulpan consists of 88 academic hours;  consequently, it is not possible to complete a full level, and students who return to study at the RIS might find it difficult to find a suitable Hebrew class.

Therefore it is recommended that students who might want to continue to study at the RIS in the future take the Summer Ulpan (held in August-September), in order to complete a full level of Hebrew.

Please note that the opening of the course is dependent upon a minimum number of registered students. 


September Undergraduate Ulpan * – August 27 - September 24, 2015

100 academic hours, 5 credits


This Ulpan is also suitable for external students interested in learning Hebrew during the month of September, who are not planning to continue their Hebrew language studies at the Rothberg International School  during the coming academic year.


Levels available: Aleph-Dalet
