Welcome to the website of the Office of the Academic Secretary of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Our intention is to include in this site all the bylaws and regulations that touch the academic life of the Hebrew University. We are very close to accomplishing this in our Hebrew interface and I hope that the Hebrew speakers among you can benefit from that. However we have translated only a small part of it to English as the need arose from time to time. I hope that this face lifting we are awarding our site will encourage us to expand the English part too.
