Student Cost of Living
Living in Israel is definitely on the more higher cost side, because on average, a student living off campus and in an apartment will need to pay a monthly rent of 400 – 800 EUR, or $1,200 USD.
This will also depend on personal wants and needs when it comes to monthly budgeting responsibilities. But the highest cost will be accommodation, it may be easier and more cost efficient for a student to stay on the college campus.
Cost of Tuition
Most students do not know that Israel’s tuition fees are higher or lower, depending on the competitiveness of the program. This is a highly interesting take, because the more the program receives recognition and many students apply for, the higher the tuition cost. However, the more a program has less students and is not widely studied, the lower the tuition cost.
Students can expect a higher tuition cost for a bachelor’s degree if the subject is competitive to start at $15,000 USD per year. If the program is not competitive, then students will be able to take the program for $4,000 USD per year.
A master’s degree goes up extensively, from $5,000 – $30,000 USD per academic year.
Languages Spoken in Israel
There are around 34 languages spoken in Israel and here are a few of them Modern Hebrew, Arabic, English, Russian, Yiddish, German, Amharic, Polish, Ukrainian, Spanish, French, Turkish, Kayla, Perisan, Judeo-Tat, and many more.
Students will always far better if they learn a main language spoken in the country they intend to apply for admissions. Most of the time, universities in other countries will ask for a proficiency exam where the main language spoken in a certain country will want to see how well a student can understand and translate. This is done in Israel; students will be tested to see if they can be taught in Hebrew or if that student will need to go to English spoken classes.
The more a student picks up a local language the better equipped they are to learn more a bout the culture and country.
