Study Abroad In Israel

Yolanda Said:

Arabic exposure through Israel study abroad?

We Answered:

It would be difficult, at best. To be immersed in Arab culture, language, etc. you'd have to live in an area with a high concetration of Palestinians, and even then, there'd be difficulties. For example, signs for the police station in Palestinian towns are written in English and in Hebrew- not in Arabic (pretty depressing, if you think about it from a Palestinian's perspective). Another problem is that if your Arabic isn't strong, people will simply speak to you in English, so you'd need to find an Arabic speaking country where you'd be forced to speak in Arabic. I'd suggest Syria (unless you've already been to Israel) as an ideal place to immerse yourself. Due to Syria's history of resisting globalization and Westernization, Syria has retained much of its original culture, unlike parts of Jordan which are highly Western.

study abroad in Israel?

I don't think its going to be difficult to get accepted to the Intensive Hebrew program. However, I think that people who are going to study a year or a semester has first priority to get into the program
I’m planning to take the Intensive Hebrew program in the summer if I get accepted into the university.

It depends on what kind of Visa you get. If you are on a tourist visa or a student visa you can't work in Israel.

My advice to you is if you have some questions you should send an email to the university. They are very polite when answering emails. And you should also read this:

It’s a link I got from the university.

How does one go about studying in Israel with the help of grants or financial aid?

We Answered:

just to let u know, we lived in israel for 5yrs. if u r of jewish bkgrd, its plain sailing. sure to get. u can write direct to the universities there as each one has their own policy. hebrew uni in jerusalem is good. in fact all r good. when u r there, visit bahai gardens and / or try univ of haifa which sits atop a mountain and the scenery is just beautiful - desert, forest, sea all in one glance!
the country is just great despite the -ve comments. ppl r more than friendly. just that the cost of living is high. consumer goods is expensive too.
those were our best yrs, so it shall be for u

Diane Said:

How did you feel when you visited/studied abroad in Israel for the first time?

We Answered:

The number one thing that tourists and newcomers notice is that expectations based on overseas news reports do not prepare them for how intensely Israelis live life. Visitors who read foreign newspapers are amazed upon arrival to see Israelis going about their business, chatting with friends in cafes, and traveling with their families.
As your question is culture-based, it depends very much upon your friend's place of origin and, to a lesser extent, where in Israel he will be studying. There is an ethnic mix of people throughout Israel that seems exotic to a student from an insular small town (for example) while it may appear less noticeable to someone from a very large city. (When I studied one summer in NYC, USA, most foreign and out of town students chose to stay in Manhattan and commute to the university. My New York friend pointed out that my unusual choice to rent in the economically challenged, colorful neighborhood near the school made sense only after she realized that the element of ethnicity there was reminiscent of an Israeli shuk/outdoor market; hence, she declared, I felt at home.) I have seen people astounded by the number of languages that they overhear here on public transport.
Your friend may be surprised by many cultural phenomena, such as the extent to which almost everyone has at least one cellphone glued to her/his ear. He may require extra patience in his first days and weeks here as he tries to make various arrangements that he has only ever done in his home country. This is particularly true if he is just learning Hebrew. However, he will be offered help and will learn the ropes. People from many countries notice how efficient Israelis are in a crisis. There is no country in the world where an ambulance can speed more efficiently through a traffic jam on a main street, and all the other vehicles will find creative ways to get out of its path.
There are many details to which one must become accustomed. So much is different: new sounds, smells, sights, behaviors, currency, and way of life. (When he leaves to go home, he may find that he has to readjust to some aspects of his old country. Wait till he jumps a line accidentally overseas.)
Finally, he isn't really expected to "fit in" too much. Within reason, Israelis allow for a greater degree of difference in a non-Jewish foreign visitor than would be acceptable in a neighbor or new immigrant. And, he can always call you for advice!
