Freshers Trip

UJS Freshers Trip 2019

 Are you...

  • Starting University this year?
  • Want to lead campaigns on campus that promote peace, dialogue & respectful debate?
  • Want to be prepared for campus life?
  • Want to become the next big student leader?
  • Want the leadership skills and knowledge to do so?  

Look no further… After a hugely successful trip last summer, we are excited to announce the return of UJS Freshers Trip 2019!

This is a 7-day trip to Israel where you will learn from the experts, meet senior policy makers and gain vital skills and knowledge to give you the confidence to be a leader on campus! Having finished school and looking for ways to prepare yourself for campus life, this is your opportunity to put yourself a step ahead when you arrive to halls!

You’ll see first-hand the real and complex current situation and you’ll be introduced to multiple facets of Israeli society through a social, cultural, political and religious lens, and Israeli and Palestinian voices on the conflict. Not only this, but you will build a network of likeminded students from universities across the UK.

We are looking for participants who demonstrate the desire to work with UJS and our partners throughout their campus life to then go on and play an active and positive role in the wider Jewish community.

In order to apply, you need to be starting university this year (2019), so if you are taking a gap year, you’ll have to wait until 2020! You will need to complete an application form that will be available soon, and you will be then be invited to a telephone interview but places are strictly limited!

The price is £199 which includes flights, meals and accommodation. This is heavily subsided to minimise finance being a barrier to participation, but further financial assistance may be available. Please contact Sam in the strictest confidence.

The dates of the trip are tbc, but stay posted to find out. There will be a mandatory orientation seminar prior to the trip.

This trip is a project of UJS with the Jewish Agency for Israel in partnership with the Zionist Federation, StandWithUs UK, Yachad, UJIA, CAMERA on Campus UK.
