Hebrew University Speaks: Meet International Students at HU

Welcome to segment #9 of Hebrew University Speaks, CFHU’s monthly video series featuring thought-provoking, informative and entertaining presentations by HU faculty and students.

Our previous instalment presented a four-part short video series focusing on some of the faculty and labs that are fighting COVID-19 at Hebrew University.

This month, we continue to expand our scope beyond TED Talks and HUJI Talks to include a special video spotlight on international students at Hebrew U, as they reveal what drew them to Israel and the university, as well as highlights of their experiences. They are from a wide range of disciplines: brain science, business, non-profit management, and international development.
