The summer abroad courses at The Hebrew University's Rothberg International School (RIS) are designed for undergraduate and graduate students as well as mature learners with academic backgrounds. These courses go beyond the classroom. You’ll join students from more than 70 countries around the world and enjoy a summer schedule packed with enriching seminars, fun activities, and local trips designed to help you explore Israel’s geographic and cultural landscape. We have two summer sessions to suit your needs: a four-week July session and a two-week August session. If you want to get the most of your summer, you can combine courses from both sessions. All summer courses at HebrewU’s RIS are accredited and taught in English.
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.
