In light of the on-going Covid-19 pandemic and after the success of last year's online programme, we are running this year’s Cambridge Modern Hebrew Ulpan online. While we are disappointed not to be able to hold this year’s Ulpan in person at the University of Cambridge’s Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, we remain dedicated to providing all our students with the high standard of Hebrew language training you have come to expect from us.

In order to fully participate in the online course, you will require:

  • a desktop, laptop computer, or tablet, with a webcam, audio speakers, and microphone access;
  • good internet connection;
  • zoom (which we will provide secure access to);
  • a quiet space to work in.

It would be very helpful if you could indicate whether or not you would be interested in joining us this year. Please respond to by Friday, 7 May 2021. If you have any questions or queries, please email them to the above-mentioned address.
