University of Haifa

Spread along the top of Mount Carmel, at the southern edge of Haifa overlooking beautiful Carmel National Park, the University of Haifa (UoH) is the most pluralistic and diverse institution in Israel. Its student population of 18,000 is a unique and inspiring cultural mosaic of native Israels and immigrants, the secular and the religious: Jews, Christians, Muslims, Druze, Bedouins.

Additionally, UoH educates a high volume of military personnel, and is the largest comprehensive research university in northern Israel. Its inclusive environment of mutual respect has contributed to its excellence in research, and demonstrates the benefits of cultural diversity in education.

International travel presents challenges that may not be found when attending classes on campus. There may be a lack of resources, emergency services, hospitals, accessibility issues and/or demands on the physical and the mental self, all of which can challenge individuals when away from their usual support systems and structures. Adequate preparation is essential.

For this reason, it is imperative that you evaluate all aspects of your own physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual condition against the rigors of the particular study abroad program you are selecting. If you are unsure of whether or not this program is a good fit for you and/or if you have any circumstances that could impede your enjoyment of the program, please contact us. Our Study Abroad Team will be happy to assist in finding the best options for you and arrange any supports or accommodations necessary to ensure your success.

Please note if you have or are seeking a certificate from Student Accessibility Services, you should provide this early to your Study Abroad Advisor to ensure that the option that you are seeking can support your needs.
