“Study in Israel” initiative for higher education targeting more Asian candidates E-mail

In October, the Council for Higher Education in Israel (CHE) launched the “Study in Israel” initiative in order to double the number of international students enrolled in Israeli colleges and universities, initially targeting students in North America but now seeing with greater emphasis on China and India.

With already 12,000 international students enrolled in higher education institutions, the programme aims to grow these numbers through dozens of short-term and longer study schemes at top Israeli schools.

The programme’s tagline is “Engage in Excellence,” highlighting the country’s innovative academic and research landscape as part of the startup nation.

“We have committed to making Israel a ‘brain gain’ country for students and researchers from around the world—North and South America, Europe, and Asia,” said Professor Yaffa Zilbershats, chair of the CHE’s Planning and Budgeting Committee.

“With this new campaign, Israel is now more attractive than ever; we’re looking forward to bringing many more students from around the globe in years to come.”
