Researchers at Israel’s Maimonides University have been studying the effects of study abroad on university graduates, with the aim of developing a system to facilitate the study of the Middle East.
The program, launched in 2016, is a collaboration between the Israeli Ministry of Education and the Maimonide Faculty of Social Sciences.
It is the brainchild of Dr. Nir Shalev, the dean of the Maimot and a professor of psychology at the university.
Shalev said he is convinced that study abroad has a positive impact on the mental health of students.
“We know that there is a huge gap between what students are thinking in their minds and the reality of the world,” he said.
“That is why we are trying to create a system where students can access their own mental health research.
In my opinion, study abroad is the most efficient way for students to have a better understanding of their own world, which is very different from their university classes.”
While studying abroad is still an option for some Israeli students, there is now a new initiative that offers opportunities for international students to get a foothold in Israel and work in the country’s universities.
The Israeli government has announced the creation of the Israeli Study Abroad program, which aims to increase the number of foreign students working in Israel by 5 percent over the next two years.
The Maimonites program was founded in 2012 and is one of a number of international study abroad programs across Israel, with more than 200 universities offering the option.
Maimon’s first international student was a student from the United Kingdom, who came to study in Israel in 2017.
Shaleb said that the program has been instrumental in the development of foreign graduates in Israel, and is already helping some of them to become researchers and researchers abroad.
Shalom Kallofsky, a graduate of the program who is now working as a research associate at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said that it is important for the Maelims program to be open to all students.
“We’re hoping to encourage other universities to create their own study abroad facilities and to open their programs for foreign students,” he told The Jerusalem Times.
“There’s a lot of things that we want to do, like help students and the community to have better understanding about what they are doing in their studies, and to get the students to become more aware of their mental health, so they can be better prepared to go abroad and work.
The Maimon study abroad center is really a platform for us to share our knowledge.”
Shaleb believes that the Israeli government is well-intentioned in this program.
“I think they are really trying to make the best use of our limited resources, and that we can learn a lot from them and to help them do their research, and also learn about our country and its people,” he added.
