Hebrew University is located in the historical city of Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. Jerusalem is well known for its historical and holy sites and fascinating tourist attractions. In addition it is a thriving metropolis rich in museums, theaters and music halls.

Students may take courses taught in English at the Rothberg International School from a wide range of disciplines geared towards foreign students. Additionally, students with sufficient knowledge of Hebrew are encouraged to attend departmental Hebrew University classes together with Israeli students.

Participants earn transfer credit that may be used as in residence credit for certain UT requirements. Grades earned do not factor into the UT Austin GPA although grades earned will appear on the UT Austin transcript.
