Who are we?
Kibbutzim College trains educators and therapists with a humanistic and socially-environmentally conscious approach. The College works to cultivate academic skills, establish a sense of democratic citizenship and integrate arts in education. These values come into play in fascinating and multi-disciplinary study programs.
Kibbutzim College is a leader in the field of education and believes that there is more than one way to learn and teach. Consequently, the study program in the College incorporates DSE, or in other words a "different student experience".
During their studies, students leave the classroom and learn in museums, go on trips throughout Israel, experiment with photography and editing studios and participate in challenging activities in escape rooms, simulations, observation areas, debate sessions and much, much more.
Currently, Kibbutzim College is the largest and leading academic college of education and arts in Israel. More than 10,000 students pass through its gates each year in various innovative programs for bachelor's degree, master's degree, retraining programs and diploma and professional continuing education programs.
