Higher Education in Israel.
Barshad, Tamir; Goldbach, Avi
This book, which describes higher education programs in Israel, is intended to help overseas students find academic programs suited to their individual needs. Israel's higher education institutions, in conjunction with the Committee for Overseas Students, offer overseas students approximately 30 long-term (one semester or one year) programs that lead toward a degree designed especially for overseas students; 70 summer school programs are also available. The programs offer contact with Israeli students, Israeli society, and Israeli customs. The first section of the book is an overview; it discusses degree programs (undergraduate, master's, and doctoral), diploma studies (certificate programs), special programs for overseas students, and the mandate of the Council for Higher Education in Israel. The largest section of the book is comprised of a listing of academic institutions and the fields of study they offer, arranged hierarchically by universities, non-university sectors, regional colleges under the academic responsibility of Bar-Ilan University, regional colleges under the academic responsibility of Ben-Gurion University, teacher training colleges, and study programs at Israeli institutions of higher education. Each multipage listing provides name, address, phone/e-mail/Web site, followed by a brief historical overview of the institution, the programs of study offered, admission requirements and application information, and sections on student life, housing, and financial aid.
