Study with Us: Student Exchange Program

Shenkar College has established itself as one of the leading educational institutions in Israel. The combination of the faculties of engineering, design and art is the basis of this unique multidisciplinary academia, allowing students and professors to connect cutting-edge technologies with contemporary creative practices. 

Students currently enrolled at one of our partner institutions are welcome to apply for a semester of study at Shenkar. There is no free-mover program at Shenkar College, and the students should receive a nomination from their home department prior to applying. Exchange students continue to pay tuition to their home institution while visiting Shenkar.  

Student nominations for specific departments are submitted through the exchange coordinator at the home university. Applications for exchange should be sent directly to the International Office of Shenkar via email.
