This portal contains information about rights for students preparing for parenthood, including those who are in a process of fertility treatment, pregnancy, surrogacy, foster care or adoption in Israel and abroad.

You're a student and also on your way to be a parent?! It happens...enjoy!

Rights to which expectant students are entitled are defined in the law, as well as in the Council for Higher Education regulations. Additionally, the educational institutions and the student unions also grant additional benefits relevant to students preparing for parenthood. It is important to note that the manner in which the various rights and benefits are granted varies from institution to institution. It is therefore always recommended to check with the dean of students and with the student union for the exact information about a specific institution.

Students whose rights have been violated may contact the accommodations coordinator, (whose contact details can be found on the institution's website or through its student union). If the problem is not solved after contacting the coordinator, the student ombudsman may also be contacted.
