Study Abroad in Israel

Israel is located in the Middle East, on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It is the world’s only Jewish-majority state which draws some to study abroad in Israel. Religious tourism is a large industry in Israel and is popular due to the country’s temperate climate, beaches and archaeological and historical sites. It also has the highest number of museums per capita in the world, another reason that 3,000 American students will study abroad in Israel each year.

Below you will find our list of Study Abroad programs in Israel. It is an index to international education in Israel listing university level study abroad, internships, volunteer and intensive language school programs oriented to American college and university students. Some pre-college and post-graduate options are also included. We invite you to read the student reviews, see the ratings scores and use this site to compare programs and understand what other students have encountered during their education abroad.

We also suggest you investigate the Masa Israel Journey website to explore why Israel is a top study abroad destination.
