Have you ever wanted to experience a different culture, country, language and new setting?

As a BIU student, we invite you to apply for an exchange student program opportunity where you will study abroad for a semester and experience an adventure of a lifetime.

“The main goal of the Erasmus+ trip was to strengthen the cooperation between Bar-Ilan University and the University of Patras, and to encourage students to join the joint research. The goal was achieved above expectations! Some students have already expressed interest in joint research, and we hope to win the second year and thus continue the tradition of excellence of the two universities.”

Prof. Dror Fixler, Israel 

“It is difficult to summarize my beautiful experience during the Erasmus program for PhD students at the University of Granada. Besides having been this fundamental stay for my doctoral dissertation, I met people who are very important for my academic future. Go back to Bar Ilan University, with the new knowledge and, after being outside, it allowed me to transmit my learning to my colleagues in the department. Along with this, I had the opportunity to promote our institution and its principles there”.

“My tenure at Bar-Ilan University as a student has proven to be one of the best periods of my life. It has given me the opportunity to discover my potential. At BIU, we interact with both Israeli and international students, ensuring that my studies lead me to a satisfying and prosperous career. Specifically, the Erasmus Mobility+ study abroad program has impacted my professional development and is of great value. As well as starting to carve out a fabulous career for myself, I was granted a rare and valuable opportunity to travel the globe with the support of Erasmus.”

“Bar-Ilan University provides many opportunities when it comes to students mobility and suggest flexible programs with very supportive environment, and I thank them very much for my time at the University of Valencia. The benefit of having the opportunity to spend 3 months at the University of Valencia is something that is difficult to quantify. During my stay there, I met new people, locals and foreign students, who engaged in similar research areas to mine. Observation at different people doing similar things enriches the perspective and the way of thinking in which problems can be approached. Beyond that, staying in Europe allowed me to travel a lot and to explore different parts of Spain during holidays vacations”

Hadas Lupa, Israel

“I am truly grateful for the Bar-Ilan International School and my Professor for the organization of international partnerships, and especially for the chance to be part of an Erasmus Program for PhD students at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. This internship was a perfect chance to develop my personal and professional life. I was lucky enough to meet wonderful people who helped to be integrated in their country and projects. I believe that my scientific knowledge from the University of Venice would enable me to make a valuable contribution to my group back in Israel”

The International School of Bar-Ilan University was very encouraging and supporting before, during and after my participation on Erasmus+ and I’m grateful for this. I chose to go to Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, to enjoy some quiet time, to meet new people and to enrich my research skills and experience as a Ph.D. student.
During the Erasmus+ time I had the privilege to meet new people within and without the University. Staying in Europe helped me travel and discover new lovely places and to enjoy new experiences.

Roie Yellinek, Israel


“First of all, I’d like to thank Bar-Ilan University for the incredible opportunity of visiting the University of Jyvaskyla as part of the Erasmus program. During my time there I had a chance to meet colleagues from all over the world and be introduced to a variety of state-of-the-art techniques. Alongside of that, I made new personal connections that have and will allow me to further advance the research in my field. As an added bonus, I was very thankful for the chance to explore a beautiful part of Finland with it’s warm, hospitable culture and people”.
