Higher Education

​Besides being Israel’s capital, Jerusalem is also the country’s largest city. Its geographically central location has led to the establishment of a myriad of academic institutions throughout the city in almost every field imaginable.

​Jerusalem’s premier academic institution is the Hebrew University which, when founded in 1925, was also the first university established in Israel. Since then, many other colleges have been established offering bachelors degrees, masters degrees, technical certification, preparatory programs, psychometric prep courses and high school matriculation. Colleges and seminaries have also been established in the outlying areas only a short distance from the city, proper. Jerusalem is also home to some very specialized unique institutions of world renown in their respective fields.
