The Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design is Israel’s most renowned art and design institution. Established in 1906 by Prof. Boris Schatz, Bezalel is also Israel’s oldest academic institution, offering students from all over the world a wide range of theoretical and practical courses in all the different art and design media. Today the Bezalel Academy is home to 2,000 gifted students and 400 lecturers. Both the faculty and the student body are driven by a passion to create and by their meticulous attention to detail and excellence. These two cornerstones have placed Bezalel at the epicenter of Israel's cultural discourse and artistic scene, making it instrumental in shaping and enriching the country's cultural identity.
Israel is uniquely situated in a geo-political junction, a meeting point of Western and Eastern culture, between Islam and the Judeo-Christian world. In this context, Bezalel’s mission, together with RIS, is not only to promote the spirit and tradition of Jewish creativity, but also to nurture a humanistic and pluralistic spirit which promotes tolerance and respect for the individual and their creative endeavors.
RIS offers a full range of accredited courses taught in English. Bezalel's main facilities and the RIS are located in adjacent buildings on the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Graduate students from countries other than the United States and Canada may be eligible for Rothberg Family Fund (RFF) tuition scholarships, awarded by the Hebrew University to international students enrolled in the RIS Division of Graduate Studies. Eligibility is determined by academic achievement and financial need.
