Bachelor degree at BGU
11 years of school is not enough to get into BGU. Since students study longer in Israel, you must first eliminate the academic difference — study for a year at a university in your home country, or take one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). Before submitting documents to the university, applicants take an English language exam. The university accepts the results of IELTS. The IELTS exam must be 6 and above.
BGU has an urban campus, which provides students with many options for study and recreation. The abundance of museums, theaters and cinemas creates opportunities for the cultural development of young people. In the city, there are also large companies that offer internships. The school has a library where students can do their homework or just relax. BGU regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs. For locals, this is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the cultures of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
