Collegiate admissions process' do not always reflect students' innate skills. Our unique Engineering & Sciences Bridge Programs operates in collaboration with Ben Gurion University. These Programs enables talented candidates, who do not meet universities' entry requirements, a pathway to launch their academic studies with a first year at Sapir College.

We provide high-quality and demanding first-year (freshman) academic studies, in a supportive environment. Successful students continue directly to the second year (sophomore) of their degree programs at Ben Gurion University or other institutions, contributing to Israel's scientific and engineering communities, in meaningful and premium demand jobs.

Israel's innovation and cutting-edge products requires higher numbers of qualified engineers.  Participating students have the required abilities but do not meet formal admission criteria for a BSc engineer degree.  We offer high-level first year studies offering the first step to a future in one of the most desirable and rewarding careers as an engineer. Students who successfully complete the program continue their degree studies at Ben Gurion University. High-achieving students can also join the Technion or Tel Aviv University engineer programs. Sapir has student admission agreements with other colleges to ensure that every successful student on completion of their first year of studies will find an academic placement that is commensurate with their skills.

Our Sciences Bridge Program offers an opportunity to those who aspire to understand the human genome and explore the keys to human health. Students learn the foundations of the sciences, including courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, natural sciences and health sciences. We offer high-level first year studies that enables students to continue their scientific degrees at Ben Gurion University. Students can also pursue degrees at the Life Sciences and the Chemistry Departments at Bar-Ilan University, the Faculty of Agriculture at Hebrew University and the Chemical Engineering Department at the Technion.
