The Rothberg International School is the international study center of the Hebrew University with courses designed to open your mind to new areas of knowledge and inquiry.

Student Life:

The Office of Student Activities (OSA) is responsible for organizing diverse extracurricular programs specifically designed to introduce RIS students to the Land of Israel – its people, geography, culture and politics. The many exciting events, tours and activities that complement the academic program allow participants to see the country from new angles and provide them with a comprehensive, memorable Israel experience.

OSA employs a team of specially selected students (called madrichim), who reside in the dormitories, to assist international students in adjusting to campus life at the Hebrew University and to make sure that they receive the full benefit of their stay in Israel . The madrichim are a good source of information on general matters, too. Feel free to call or visit them in the dorms or in the office (Boyar Bldg. Room 402).

Life in Jerusalem:


While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachments below.
