The University of Haifa, the only university in northern Israel, was founded in 1963 joint auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Haifa Municipality. The university is surrounded by the beautiful Carmel National Park. The university welcomes a diverse student body of more than 18,000 students in six faculties: Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences and Science Education, Law, Social Welfare and Health Studies, and Education; and five schools: Business Administration, Social Work, History, Public Health, and Political Sciences.

Participants can choose a summer, semester, year-long program. Students with a high level of Hebrew can directly enroll into the University; otherwise, the International School within the university offers classes in English along with Hebrew and Arabic language courses.
