Haifa is Israel's third largest city and one of the most beautiful. The University of Haifa has a diverse student body, with a mixture of Jews, Christians, Muslims, Druze, and Bedouin, a combination of new immigrants with native Israelis, and a blend of secular and religious. 18,000 students study at the University of Haifa, and close to 900 international students study in the programs of the International School each year. The campus is located at the edge of the city on Mount Carmel, which gives students an excellent opportunity to explore the city and use their acquired Hebrew skills.

The Summer Ulpan brings together students from over 40 countries who immerse themselves in an intensive Hebrew language experience. Instruction is offered on all levels, from elementary to advanced.

The Ulpan is divided into two independent four-week sessions. Each Ulpan session offers the full range of studies on all levels of proficiency. You may register for either or both of the sessions offered.

Classes are held on Sunday through Thursday mornings (and occasionally on Fridays) for five academic hours per day. A variety of learning tools are used in the classroom, including work in the language laboratory, computer and video sessions, as well as guest lectures and interviews. You will be given a great deal of personal attention by our exceptional Ulpan staff.

Each four-week Ulpan awards five academic credits.


Haifa is an ideal urban setting for a vibrant academic center. Located on the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, Haifa is marked by an exciting multiculturalism. Long known for its ethnic and religious tolerance, life in the city offers its inhabitants and visitors alike a mosaic of enthralling cultural events: concerts, theater, museums, a vibrant night-life, and the cafes and beaches of the golden Mediterranean coastline. The Sea of Galilee, the Golan Heights, Nazareth, Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem are all within easy reach.

Program highlight include a full and rich itinerary of social activities, including trips, tours, lectures, and celebrations. Each session begins with a guided tour of Haifa and the university campus as well as an opening party. Then, throughout the session, our Social Activities Coordinators will help you get to know Israel through a series of afternoon and day trips. You will also have the opportunity to attend lectures given by University of Haifa faculty on political, cultural, religious and social issues in Israel.
