Student Reviews

Good but must be patient
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great learning atmosphere, good professors, could have better student-teacher communication. The school itself can use some financial support. Overall, it's a good school if close to home.

Hard but worth it
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is a very known university in Israel and is known to be the best. Thanks to that ranking it is also a hard university to study at, you have a lot of studying to do on yourself, on your time and independently. This disadvantage is also an advantage, because it teaches you a lot and helps you to expand your horizons.
