Israeli Applicant Instructions

***The MPH program is now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 academic year***

Applications are processed on a rolling admissions basis; we review and accept applications as soon as the complete application file is received. To secure a spot in the program, we encourage students to apply as early as possible. Applying early will also ensure better chances of obtaining financial aid and dormitory reservation in case they are relevant. Classes start October 2024.

Note: If you have made Aliyah within the past 5 years, you have to apply via the International School (see International Applicants). If you made Aliyah longer than 5 years ago, you need to apply as an Israeli student.

To apply, please complete the following steps:

If you speak Hebrew, register via the Hebrew-speaking applicants portal:

Within the online registration process you will have to pay a registration fee (using an Israeli credit card).

You will have to upload the required documents:

  • 2 letters of recommendation from academic or professional supervisor (in English)
  • Personal statement (in English)
  • CV (in English)
  • Scores from official University-administered English exam (or other official English test e.g. GRE, TOEFL, IELTS)*

*Native English speakers and candidates who graduated from an academic institution where the language of instruction is English do not need to submit English exam scores

If you do not speak Hebrew, you can fill in a manual application form in English to the Registration Department (i.e. this is instead of the above)

Submit to Registration Department:
