If you were offered an opportunity to change your life, live abroad, meet new people and travel, would you take it? If you were able to be part of history, would you?  If you could attend a university that is ranked in the top 85 of all universities, would you go? If you answered yes or maybe, have we got an offer for you!

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem beckons!  With an unparalleled selection of programs for students, it is the best option for a semester or year abroad available to Winnipeg high school graduates and university students. And it’s the most fun you will ever have.

The Undergraduate Study Abroad Program, (formerly the One Year Program), is designed for 2nd -4th year students who can earn transferable credit while making lasting connections with classmates and Israeli friends.
