Course overview

The Certificate in Modern Hebrew is an introductory qualification in Hebrew and Israeli Studies.

Full-time students choose four units from the following:


Students can study full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 or 3 years). Four units must be taken and passed to gain the certificate.

For students with good prior knowledge of Modern Hebrew other combinations are possible, allowing the study of language and literature at a more advanced level.

Part-time students specialise more particularly in Modern Hebrew language and literature, for example, Intensive Modern Hebrew (2 units) in Year 1 and Intermediate Modern Hebrew and Introduction to Israeli Literature in Year 2 or Years 2 and 3.
