The University of Haifa was established in 1963 under the joint auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Haifa Municipality. In 1972 it gained academic accreditation from the Council for Higher Education as a separate institution. Thus, the University of Haifa is a fully accredited university under the auspices of Israel’s Ministry of Education and the Israeli Council for Higher Education. The University is recognized internationally as an approved site for study abroad, and academic credits earned are transferable to home institutions to be applied toward degree completion. The University of Haifa is also recognized by the UNESCO-based International Association of Universities.
