UNIVERSITY OF HAIFA (UH) is the largest comprehensive research University in the north of Israel, with 18,000 students in 6 Faculties and 52 academic departments. The mission of the University is to conduct research at the highest international level and to prepare the coming generations of scholars, professionals and citizens for Israeli democracy. Haifa University has launched an ambitious program of internationalization that includes receiving more than 1000 foreign students in mobility programs annually, sending an increasing number of students abroad, and launching 20 new international graduate programs, which constitute the leading English language platform in Israel for double degree collaborations.

The main purpose of this exploring visit is to identify country/institution needs in terms of therapy and rehabilitation education; analyze undergraduate and master degrees curricula characteristics; determine strong pedagogical/research areas and experiences held in each institution; develop a proposal for future projects (i.e. teaching joint courses, development of joint research projects, or other); identify and explore other health related areas where international cooperation (including students’ mobility) may be developed; identify other international partners to involve in a larger project.
