The program offers participants professional development across a variety of fields: business, technology, communications, education, and more.

This program is only offered to students who are enrolled in a summer course.

During the program, you will spend between four and eight weeks working at a Jerusalem-based placement (NGOs, private companies, research centres, etc) in the field of your interest, building your real-world skills and network while studying at Hebrew University.
