The International School of Agricultural Sciences, Hebrew University
The International School of Agricultural Sciences of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, has been providing English-language programs in the agricultural sciences since 1988.
About 3,000 participants from 125 countries participated in the International School’s programs held at the Faculty, of which more than 200 students from 45 countries have studied in the international, English-language M.Sc. Agriculture and M.Sc. Nutrition programs.
The major aims of the International School’s programs are to provide students with the opportunity to acquire advanced academic knowledge and observe up-to-date practical applications. Other objectives are to explore new fields and cultures; to exchange ideas, expand knowledge and share experiences; to contribute to capacity-building and problem-solving; and to create partnerships for future cooperation.
One of the key factors in the program’s success is the close relationship developed between the International School and the Smith Faculty staff with visiting students as well as among the students themselves. Students in the programs develop a network of contacts who share their interests and enthusiasm on academic, practical and social levels. Field-trips and social and cultural activities bring them into contact with Israelis of many walks of life. All of these experiences broaden their horizons and affect both the scientific knowledge obtained and the adoption of an overall attitude that is more open towards other people, cultures and ideas.
