The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel’s first university and a symbol of the cultural rebirth of the Jewish nation in its ancestral homeland, is a multidisciplinary institution of higher learning and research. It is a scientific centre of international repute, where thousands of young Israelis receive a university education with an accent on excellence; where advanced post-graduate study and research are of great focus; and where special programs attract a large number of overseas students to pursue degrees or earn credits for transfer. This is a University with a three-fold function: to serve the State of Israel by training its scientific, educational and professional manpower; to serve the Jewish people by preserving and expanding the Jewish cultural, spiritual and intellectual heritage; and to serve humanity by extending the frontiers of knowledge.
