There has been a substantial increase in the number of school facilities intended for the Haredi community in the past decade, including both Haredi campuses as well as public universities that have made accomodations for the Haredi community. This increase has created a healthy competition amongs higher educational institutions and led to a large variety of professional courses and academic study options, almost all in practical fields that lead to a means of livelihood. Humanity courses adapated for Haredim may not be in existence yet, but you will find an abundance of qualifying degrees in graphic design, engineering, and accounting.
Studies are divided into two main categories: certificate studies (vocational programs), and academic degree studies. While most vocational studies set no minimum requirements, most academic degree studies demand prerequisites in order to apply.
There are currently many study options available for Haredi students, most of which are included in Kemach’s programs, allowing students to receive financial subsidies or conditional loans based on the degree studied and on criteria set by the Foundation.
