The academic program in Bar Ilan is also complemented by extra-curricular activities, including cultural events that will introduce you to Jewish and Israeli history and culture, to the political situation and the Arab-Israeli conflict and peace process. BIU intends to organize a one-day excursion to Jerusalem, including a visit to Israel's Supreme Court, the Knesset (Parliament) and the Old City.
You will be responsible for making your own travel arrangements to Israel and back. The program officially begins and ends in Tel Aviv.
Bar Ilan University does not provide housing. Sometimes accommodations are available through the Bar Ilan University Student Association. Otherwise, you will have to arrange for your own housing in rented apartments around campus. The BIU Faculty can provide guidance on how to find housing.
