I was attracted to Israel mainly because of its world-renowned title as a “start-up nation”. I’ve been in Israel for three months. These are the most amazing months for me this year: I dived in the most beautiful sea in Eilat, hiked in the most incredible Negev desert and met very friendly Israelis. Jerusalem, in particular, is a magical place where various religions co-exist, and also traditional mindsets and innovative spirits co-exist, which you cannot always experience in other places. As China-Israel relations have been developing rapidly in recent years, the more frequent educational exchanges enabled me to see the opportunity to pursue my studies in Israel.

The people around you try to make the best out of what they have and this is an amazing ability that I learned and it will positively affect my future career and life. I recommend everybody to study in Israel since this is a one of a kind country from which everyone is able to learn. I am looking forward to my next stay here in Israel!”
Martin from Ecuador
“I decided to form my education in Israel because I wanted to immerse myself more in the Jewish world. I wanted to understand in a legal perspective the creation and development of the State. Living and learning in Israel is very special for me. I met so many people and learn from their stories, starting from old founding fathers to new immigrants. The sense of community enriches me culturally. This program will definitely help me in the future, because the values of the Israeli education- hope, persistence and innovation are the key to success. Hopefully I will be able to apply my knowledge not only in Israel, but around the world.”

Israel is a young, innovative, cultural and energetic country – it is the best place for young people looking for a chance to grow and learn. In Israel and throughout Jewish history, the value for education and learning has been cherished and protected, and it is for that reason that I chose to pursue my academic path here. Israel is not only the land of milk and honey – but the land of opportunities. In Israel, I know the opportunities are endless!”
