Ben Gurion University in the Negev
The extraordinary and groundbreaking achievements of our researchers, students and graduates are not only a result of the advanced research and teaching infrastructure and excellent study conditions, but also of the unique way of studying, living and working at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. The open and friendly atmosphere that characterizes the university, along with the commitment to academic excellence and social involvement, encourages researchers and students here to act creatively and freely to advance science, culture and society and to break boundaries in research.
Our graduates join and lead in all fields, in Israel and abroad, and some continue to advanced degrees at the best universities in the world. In Israel, employers' familiarity with the quality and professional abilities and skills that university graduates hold contributes to a high demand of our graduates in the job market.
An emphasis on research that can drive real world change has been part of the University's mandate since its inception. Unique collaborations and interdisciplinary degree programs are developing innovative approaches to solving such problems and leading to singular advances across the sciences and the humanities.
BGU is the most vibrant, social, pluralistic and active campus in the country, at a level that only campuses abroad reach. All of these help our students excel, focus on their studies and also enjoy this significant period in their life.
With 20,000 students, 6,700 staff and faculty members, and 3 campuses in Be'er-Sheva, Sde Boker and Eilat, BGU is realizing the vision of Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, who believed that the future of Israel lay in the Negev region.
