Yeshiva University is the oldest and most comprehensive educational institution under Jewish auspices in America. It is an independent university that ranks among the nation's leading academic research institutions and, reflecting the time-honored tradition of Torah Umadda, provides the highest quality Jewish and secular education of any Jewish university in the world. Since its inception the University has been dedicated to melding the ancient traditions of Jewish law and life with the heritage of Western civilization, and each year they celebrate as future leaders make YU their home. Their foundation defines and separates them from every other institution. They embody a Unique Mission- Yeshiva University is North America’s premier Jewish, student-centered university devoted to teaching, learning and research. Their commitment to Torah, rigorous secular curricula, intellectual exploration and service to community prepare each student for a personally and professionally successful, meaningful life and while the YU community works continuously to fulfil its Mission, they must also be looking toward the future in order to ensure nowhere but here retains its relevance for all their tomorrows. Their Vision-Yeshiva University will infuse their unique mission into a dynamically growing, changing market and have a global impact by supporting students with superior teaching and research. In partnership with the community, they will strengthen society through the continuous advancement of knowledge for the betterment of the Jewish people and humanity as a whole. International students and exchange visitors are an important part of Yeshiva University's vibrant community. More than 500 students and scholars from over 50 countries enrol each year at the graduate and undergraduate level or join the Yeshiva's community to teach and perform research. The Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISS) provide international students and scholars with immigration support and assistance with cultural adjustment, to help you achieve your educational goals. Their students study at their four campuses: Wilf Campus (500 West 185th Street), Israel Henry Beren Campus (245 Lexington Avenue) and Brookdale Center (55 Fifth Avenue) in Manhattan, and the Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus in the Bronx (Eastchester Road and Morris Park Avenue). The undergraduate schools offer a unique dual curriculum comprising Jewish studies and liberal arts and sciences courses, and their graduate and affiliate schools offer tremendous opportunities for graduate and professional studies. While part of a multifaceted University community, each school retains the intimate character of a smaller institution.
