Students from throughout the United States and other countries live, study and socialize with their Israeli counterparts at BGU’s Ginsburg-Ingerman Overseas Student Program (OSP).
Experiencing authentic Israeli culture, OSP students learn to understand and speak Hebrew by participating in a six-week Hebrew immersion course (known as Ulpan) prior to the start of the semester.
BGU OSP students continue to develop their Hebrew skills by living with Israeli suitemates in BGU’s dorms and interacting with the people of Beer-Sheva, a city with fewer English speakers than Israel’s other major cities.
The Academic Program
Students can choose to study from a variety of English-taught courses in Jewish and Israel studies, environmental science, global health, political science, history, anthropology, Arabic, and arts and literature.
There are also special semester tracks in:
- Global Health
- Sustainable Development and the Environment
- Israel Studies
- Entrepreneurship and Innovation
BGU is known for encouraging its students to help out in the local community. There are many volunteer opportunities available to OSP students.
