Why Birzeit

Located in Birzeit, seven kilometers to the north of Ramallah, Birzeit University grew from a small school for girls into the foremost university in Palestine and one of the most prominent higher education institutions in the Arab world. 

The university offers more than 130 programs that lead to bachelors, masters, and Ph.D. degrees across nine faculties. Our 11 institutes and centers, covering areas such as public health and development studies, were created to link the universitys research and education efforts with the specific needs of the Palestinian community.

The university, in all of its constituents, works to advance and promote science and humanities for the benefit of all, providing more than 15,000 students with excellent, world-class education that equips them with the knowledge and skills needed to lead and empower their communities, whether near or far.
