About HUJI



The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is Israel’s premier university as well as its leading research institution, ranked among the 100 leading universities in the world and #1 in Israel. Ever since it was founded more than 100 years ago, Hebrew University has been at the forefront of pioneering research across numerous disciplines. In fact, its founding Board of Governors included none other than Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud; and no fewer than eight Nobel prizes and many other important awards have emanated from its halls.
