Overseas Student Program
The Ginsburg-Ingerman Overseas Student Program (OSP) at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) invites you to take the road less traveled and experience Israel as never before. Raise your expectations and participate in a truly unique immersive study abroad program.
As an international student at BGU, you will study the Hebrew language, in addition to choosing from a variety of courses taught in English that are designed to enhance and connect with your experience in Israel. To complement your academic studies, you will be encouraged to participate in volunteer service, which will deepen your knowledge and exposure to Israel and its people. You will live in dormitory apartments with Israeli students, providing you with the opportunity to practice your Hebrew and forge a genuine connection with Israelis.
You will also explore Israel on trips organized by OSP, where you will learn about the country's history, landscape and diverse traditions. Finally, as a student at BGU, you will become a part of the University's vibrant student body and gain a deep understanding of Israeli life from the "inside".
