Based on a recent study of Israel's higher education, this publication describes the organization of higher education in Israel, makes placement recommendations at U.S. institutions based on Israeli credentials, and describes individual postsecondary institutions in Israel. Part 1 explains the organization of higher education in Israel where postsecondary education is offered at vocational institutions, technical colleges and schools. Higher education is offered at institutions overseen by the Council of Higher Education. Part 1 also describes undergraduate degree programs, graduate programs, and grading systems. Part 2 contains the placement recommendations approved by the National Council on the Evaluation of Foreign Educational Credentials. Part 3 describes the individual institutions including: universities, teacher training colleges, regional colleges associated with universities, and nonacademic postsecondary institutions (teacher training colleges and schools for practical engineering, paramedical professions, technical training, nursing, and the arts). Appendixes contain a list of degrees awarded by institutions in higher education in Israel and a list of useful addresses. Also included are sample transcripts from several different types of institutions. (JB)
