HE council in bid to boost foreign student numbers
They want to spread the word that universities in Israel are gearing up to cater for foreign students by setting up programmes in English and providing registration forms in English, Professor Yaffa Zilbershats, the chairman of the council, which is in charge of higher education in Israel, said in a phone interview.
The representatives will meet with Chabad and Hillel officials, as well as other organisations, she said. Chabad is one of the largest Jewish religious organisations in the world, and Hillel is the largest Jewish campus organisation in the world. The council has also employed the services of the US-based Institute of International Education, which supports educational and cultural exchange programmes globally, to help set out its international strategy, parts of which will be presented to the delegation during the visit.
