Frequently Asked Questions
How can I register to Ulpan Milah?
If you are already in Israel, please come to Milah office to register. First you will be asked to take the placement test, and then fill in the application form and pay.
Can I register from abroad?
If you wish to register from abroad, please write to our e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org at least a month before the semester begins. In case you have any prior knowledge of Hebrew, ask also for the placement test.
After you have taken the test (If done) and filled in the application form (Read it carefully, and especially notice our cancellation policy) please send it back to us and then call to +972-2-6233164, in order to pay and confirm the registration. Payment from abroad is done by VISA & MASTERCARD credit cards ONLY.
Can I take the placement test online?
Yes. Please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com, and ask for the test and/or application form. Students who do not know any Hebrew do not need to take the placement test.
How will I know what my level is?
If you have some background in Hebrew, you will need to take a placement test. According to the result, you will be placed in the right level for you. If you do not have any prior knowledge in Hebrew, you will be placed in the Aleph (beginners) level.
Can I register for partial course?
If you want to register to in advance to Milah and reserve a place for yourself, you will have to pay the full tuition fees. We give priority to students who intend to study in Milah for the whole semester and therefore, we do not offer any discounts to students who plan on studying in Milah for a shorter period.
You may take the risk of not reserving a place and wait until the semester begins. If, by then, a spot in the class will still be available, you will be invited to register for a partial course. We do not recommend you to do so. The classes at MILAH have the tendency to get full.
Can I get a discount if I won’t stay for the entire semester?
We do not offer any discounts to students who plan on studying in Milah for a shorter period. If you want to register to in advance to Milah and reserve a place for yourself, you will have to pay for the full tuition fees.
Can I join the course in the middle of the semester?
Though we do not encourage this practice, it is possible to enter in the middle of the course, depending on your level as determined by our placement test and the number of open spots in the class.
Do you provide housing?
Unfortunately, we do not provide housing. If you are looking for housing in Jerusalem while you are still abroad, we recommend you to take a look at websites which deal with apartment rental in Jerusalem. flathunting.com is one that is particularly helpful. Other options are:
1. A very popular website with many offers, but in Hebrew: homeless.co.il.
2. A website in English: janglo.net.
3. We also strongly recommend the Abraham Hostel in the center of Jerusalem. For more information, please refer here.
What is the registration deadline?
Registration usually begins a month and a half before the beginning of the course. There is no specific date for the deadline. The registration continues as long as there are open spots in the class, but the number of places in each class is limited. If you wish to ensure your place it is advised to register as early as possible.
Do you have evening classes?
Yes. Milah has both Intensive morning courses and Evening courses. All the details (dates, days, hours and cost) can be found in our Timetables.
How much do the courses cost?
All the details (dates, days, hours and cost) can be found in our Timetables.
Where are you located?
Our Institute is located at the Hebrew Union College (HUC), in the downtown area. The light train and any bus that goes to the center of town will get you to Milah. For the exact address, please refer here.
Would an intensive Ulpan qualify me for a student Visa?
No. Since Milah is not an academic institute, and does not give academic credit points, studies at Milah do not qualify the students for a student visa.
