I. Overview
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is ranked highest in Israel and is the only Institute of Higher Education in Israel that is listed among the one hundred leading Universities in the world. The Institute of Life Sciences in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem offers advanced studies towards master’s (M.Sc.) and doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees. In the framework of these studies the students join the advanced and innovative scientific research in a variety of life sciences disciplines. The major part of these studies is carried out in research laboratories under the direct supervision of the Institute’s researchers. Therefore, students interested in studying towards an advanced degree should choose a supervisor from among the Institute’s researchers as early as possible during the registration process. In addition, students are required to participate in courses listed in the course catalog, chosen according to the subject of their research, the degree towards which they are studying, and the requirements of the department to which they were accepted.
