The news can sometimes paint a scary picture of Israel. Will I be safe?

The situation in Israel and Jerusalem is tremendously complex, however, most students report feeling very safe and secure. As is the case in most parts of the world, dangerous situations can occur, and the Glocal staff do their very best to keep students updated on any given situation and are more than happy to consult with prospective students who feel concerned about coming to the Middle East to study. Additionally, Glocal is home to a number of local students who can also act as guides through the cultural, logistical, and political elements of the city.
