You are presently facing the important decision of what to study… and where to study…
These choices are important and will affect your life and shape your future.
The Eilat Campus of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev offers you the opportunity to study at one of the most sought-after universities in Israel, in a warm and supportive atmosphere that combines high quality academic studies with all the advantages of the city of Eilat – as hundreds of satisfied students will attest.
Situated in the heights of the city, the University campus, based on the successful Beer-Sheva model, opened its doors in 2002. Its objective – to become a center for education, knowledge, and culture and a catalyst for development of the city of Eilat.
Academic activities on the Eilat Campus parallel those of the Beer-Sheva campus (B.A., M.A. & M.Sc. studies), including a variety of scholastic frameworks: pre-academic ‘preparation’ [‘mechinah’] and preparation for matriculation exams, diploma studies, and vocational training in hotel management and tourism. There are also extracurricular courses for the general public, residents of Eilat and the Arava region.
At the Eilat Campus we work to combine the unique atmosphere of Eilat and assimilate it with a high-quality, well-groomed academic campus to create a unique scholastic environment and an open, special relationship between the campus staff, students, and the city’s residents.
Since commencing academic activity, the number of students has grown, and there are presently more than 800 students studying for various academic degrees while enjoying the high academic standards of a research university. This includes a varied curriculum, small classes, personal and supportive relations with the lecturers, advanced campus services, an abundance of employment opportunities, and a lively social life.
While most students in Israel are forced to work while studying in order to finance their education, the undergraduate students at the Eilat Campus enjoy a unique benefit – a full three-year scholarship that allows them to study without financial distractions. The first 300 students to enroll (and be accepted) for studies this coming school year will receive a scholarship for the full three years of their B.A. studies.
Our special advantages will also become your own:
· A full three-year academic scholarship
· Studies at a young and high-quality campus with a unique academic environment,
· A warm and supportive atmosphere among students and the teaching staff
· Characteristics of the city of Eilat
· The opportunity for every student to study and work, thanks to close cooperation with employers who offer jobs suited for busy students.
We invite you to visit the Eilat Campus where you can get a feeling of the campus atmosphere and receive further information.
We hope that you will join the hundreds of students who have chosen the Eilat Campus of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev as their home for the next three years.
