Summer Programs 2017


Hebrew at the Hebrew University – A Unique Opportunity 


The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is an ideal setting for studying Hebrew. All Summer programs offer daily classroom instruction, in which the four skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening are practiced in a communicative attitude. Classroom instruction is reinforced with guest lectures, field trips, and cultural activities.

Hebrew studies are available on six levels, ranging from elementary (Aleph) to upper advanced (Vav). Courses are designed primarily for students enrolled in academic programs at the Hebrew University, but are also open to students who wish to learn only Hebrew (OHS), with appropriate academic background. All applicants must have been accepted to a recognized college or university or have successfully completed at least one year of study at an accredited institution of higher education. High school graduates who have successfully completed their matriculation exams may also apply.

The Scopus Ulpan is an intensive Hebrew language course ,

in which 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 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.
