Out of concern for student and faculty safety, KU does not support study abroad to locations where a U.S. State Department Travel Warning has been issued, and Israel is currently on this list (http://travel.state.gov). Exceptions to this policy will be considered by petition to the Education Abroad Review Committee (EARC).
Students interested in pursuing study, internship, or research abroad activities in Israel should meet with the Study Abroad Program Coordinator for Israel to learn more about KU’s policy and the petition process and discuss program options.
