Known as the most “Oleh-friendly” university in Israel, BIU offers a fair amount of benefits for Olim Chadashim and Overseas students. These benefits are for all students studying under a foreign passport, as well as those who started their studying within three years of making Aliyah.
The benefits below exist for undergraduate students alone. Sadly, Master's and Doctoral students in BIU are department-specific, and those students should inquire about immigrant benefits specifically with their departments.
Special Application Process
Olim Chadashim and Overseas students have the option of applying for their undergraduate degree via International Office. In addition to being better equipped to evaluate international transcripts and SATs, the International Office works hard to place Olim in the various degrees, and often has an additional quota of spots in the academic department reserved for international students.
