Visiting Research Student
The Graduate Year Program for Visiting Research Students and Visiting Research Fellows is designed to meet the special needs of research students from abroad who wish to spend a year or a semester at the Hebrew University.
Students are offered seminars and research tutorials designed to deepen their knowledge in their chosen fields of interest.
Visiting research students are students who are pursuing or have received their Ph.D. who wish to spend a year or a semester at the Hebrew University, during which they will take courses in order to deepen their knowledge in their chosen fields of interest.
While this program does not offer a degree, a full transcript will be provided in order to facilitate the transfer of credit to the student's home university. Students who decide to pursue a graduate degree at the Hebrew University's Rothberg International School, the Faculties of the Humanities or Social Sciences or the School of Social Work and Social Welfare may use this year to improve their Hebrew and to fulfill certain degree requirements.
Course of study – Visiting research students are normally expected to study for a full academic year but may opt to enroll for one semester only. Students studying for only one semester may request to study part-time, i.e. they may enroll in up to two semester courses. Students coming for the academic year may request to study part-time, i.e. they may enroll in up to four semester courses. Please note that a year-long course (i.e. a course extending over two semesters) is equal to two semester courses.
Visiting research students are encouraged to take 8-10 hours of Hebrew per semester. A recommended program may include three graduate seminars per semester, with the option of substituting a tutorial for one seminar during one semester.
