Bar-Ilan University stands with students, lecturers, researchers, and academic staff from Ukraine with special assistance

Bar-Ilan University identifies with the challenging situation that the Ukrainian people are facing, and has therefore established a special fund to assist guest researchers, lecturers, undergraduate and graduate students who come to Bar-Ilan University. We invite Ukrainian students to come study in any of our English language degree programs and to integrate into our existing research groups. Ukrainian and Russian speaking students can be mentored in their native language by Bar-Ilan students, thus ensuring a smoother absorption into campus life. Additionally, the university’s clinic networks are available to provide any necessary emotional, social or legal assistance if so needed.

This is an important and timely project and we would appreciate your sharing this message with your colleagues in the Ukraine. We are proud to be working in conjunction with the various organizations that are assisting the Ukrainian refugees of war. More information about our opportunities and services for the Ukrainian students are available at Bar-Ilan University’s International School, which is under the direction of Mr. Ofer Dahan. Please contact: intl.info@biu.ac.il for more details.
