I am an American, who wants to move to Israel. I am considering applying to go to school there, and hopefully getting a student visa. I love school, and I was in very advanced classes in high school. However, I was forced to leave school early and take my GED due to health problems as a teenager. Those health problems are better now, and I want to go to a college or a university.
1) Any tips on how to get a student visa?
2) What are the best colleges or universities in Jerusalem for an American? (I speak perfect English, and a little Hebrew).
3) Do you recommend becoming a student there? If so, any tips or instructions on how?
If you are serious about studying in Israel, I would advise first contacting your local Israeli embassy, as they are likely to have the most up-to-date information on the visa requirements which will apply to you. Our guide to visas for Israel gives a useful overview of the different types of visas you may be eligible for.
There are a number of excellent colleges and universities in Israel, but it is worth noting that most of the classes in these institutions are taught in Hebrew. Our guide to expat life in the country has a section on tertiary education in Israel which may help you determine if this is your best option.
Will you be continuing your Hebrew studies before applying to universities?
