Universities, Colleges, Trade and Vocational Schools in Israel
Trade & Vocational Schools
Some Trade and Vocational Schools are publicly funded and others are privately run. They provide instruction in specific fields primarily at the undergraduate level. Certain schools focus on law, management, and technology and teacher training. Others train students in areas of the paramedical profession such as optometry, radiology and dental hygiene. Additional schools work to ready students for careers in sports or the cultural and culinary arts.
- The Wingate Institute in Netanya trains teachers and professionals in physical education, athletics, sports medicine and bio-physics.
- The Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, offers Bachelor’s degrees in fine arts, architecture, graphic and industrial design.
- Students wishing to enter the fashion industry can do so at Ramat Gan’s Shenkar Institute of Textile and Fashion.

Each university in Israel (except for the Weizmann Institute) grants bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees in all areas of the fine arts, humanities, and the sciences. In addition research in these areas is carried out at the country’s 9 public universities:-
- Hebrew University of Jerusalem
- Tel Aviv University (TAU)
- Weizmann Institute of Science
- Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Regional Colleges are university-mandated satellite campuses which provide supplementary opportunities to students who live far from the country’s centrally situated universities. Some regional colleges offer full degree programs. Undergraduate studies are often started at one of these schools and completed at the main campus of the sponsoring university.
Today there are about 30 foreign universities in Israel with campuses both for Israeli and foreign students, undergraduates and graduates.
