International Student Exchange
Bezalel has a vibrant student exchange program with 100 leading art institutions worldwide.
Students from our partner academies are welcome to study at Bezalel for one or two semesters, usually during their third year of studies. Applications for exchange are submitted through the exchange coordinator at the respective academy. The institutions agree to recognize each other’s study programs, grades and accreditation systems.
