Olim (new immigrants) in the first 10 years of aliyah are entitled to a recognized free city ulpan course. Check with your local Ministry of Absorption office regarding your eligibility and to receive a voucher for the ulpan in your area most suited to you. There are intensive ulpans which have classes 5 days a week, usually in the morning hours, for a period of 5 months. There are also non-intensive ulpans for retirees that are 3 days a week for a period of 10 months. Advanced ulpan classes are usually 3 days a week in the late afternoons. There are also live–in ulpans in Absorption Centers and kibbutzim where there is a fee for the accommodations.  For the live–in ulpans, please contact your Jewish Agency Shaliach to make arrangements before you make aliyah. 

City ulpans may have a set time of year when they begin new classes or they may open a class when there is a large enough demand (approximately 20 students). They also accept students on a rolling admissions basis if their level warrants it. For those living in outlying areas, classes are opened in the city which has the most demand, so the oleh must be in contact with the local Ministry of Absorption office to find out when and where the next class will be opened.  

On the following pages are ulpanim that are known to AACI.  Further information and advice on the various ulpanim can be received from a counselor at the AACI branch offices.

Be’hatzlacha in your studies!
