University students now have the option to take required English courses online for free, the Council for Higher Education announced on Tuesday.

“Today we are taking a small step which will save thousands of shekels for students in Israel.

In 2016 it is possible to reduce the cost of living for students in creative ways, and this is certainly one of them,” said Education Minister and head of the council Naftali Bennett.

“From today, English courses, which cost students a lot of time and money, can be taken from home and for free, at the cost of the exam only,” he said.

As part of the new initiative, students will be able to take online courses offered by the Open University in accordance with the level of English required by the academic institution – from pre-basic level to advanced level courses.
