International Students‎

An-Najah strongly believes in the positive impact the studying abroad experience has on ‎both the students' lives and the communities as a whole. Therefore, the university receives ‎many international students from different countries around the world every year.

It is incumbent upon us to explore and expose ourselves to the richness of multi-cultural and international experiences, opportunities and ways of thinking.

International Students' Guidebook

The application process depends on whether you will be joining An-Najah as a degree or a non-degree student:

Degree students:

  1. If you want to apply for an undergraduate program, you need to first get the local equivalent of your high school diploma from the Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education in Ramallah. You can learn more about the equivalency criteria through the Ministry's Website: https://www.mohe.pna.ps/. Once you are done with the equivalency process, you can apply to An Najah through the Registration and Admission Department.

  2. If you want to apply for a graduate program, you need to provide the Registration and Admission Department at An-Najah with the original copy of your undergraduate certificate, which should be obtained from an institution that is accredited by the Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education.

Non-degree students:

If you want to apply as a non-degree student, you will either be an Erasmus+ student or an independent visiting student. In the case that your home university has an E+ agreement with An-Najah, then you have to apply through your home university, and your application will be processed in coordination with the Scholarships Office at An-Najah. On the other hand, if your home university does not have an exchange agreement with An-Najah, and you would like to apply as an independent visiting student, email the international office at: [email protected], and our staff will revert to you on due course.

Please be aware that while An-Najah is a licensed and internationally accredited university, certain institutions may have discrepancies when interpreting credit hours and applying them to domestic programs. Please check with your schools registrar’s office and discuss the matter.

Please also note that the visa issuance is determined by the Israeli authorities, and that An-Najah cannot sponsor student visas.
