Transferable Credits

Bar Ilan is chartered and accredited by the Israeli Ministry of Education, and therefore many colleges and universities in the United States and Canada recognize its courses. A sizeable list of universities that have accepted BIU credits in the past is available on the Israel Experience website. However, every college and university has its own policy regarding international study and we cannot guarantee that a particular institution will grant credit for specific courses taken at Bar Ilan. Students are encouraged to contact the school they intend to enroll in after their studies at Israel Experience to determine that school’s policy on study abroad and the transfer of credits.

Israel Experience students also have the option to apply their credits towards an entire undergraduate BA degree at Bar Ilan, with all classes taught in English. Click here for more information. Israel Experience classes can count for up to a full year of credit, which leaves just 2 years left to graduate. If a student maintains an 85 average at Bar Ilan, they also receive automatic admission to Bar Ilan’s prestigious 1-year MBA program.
