In 1925, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem was established with three aims: to become an internationally recognized institution; to foster an understanding of the Jewish state; and to be the finest university of Israel. Almost seventy-five years later, each of these ambitions has been realized.
Located on Mount Scopus, overlooking the old city, the Hebrew University has language and computer laboratories, sports facilities, a student union, and a library with over three million items.
Each year, approximately 3,000 of the 18,000 students at this non- denominational university are from abroad. The Rothberg School for Overseas Students, established in 1971, recognizes and facilitates the curricula of international students at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
