The Hebrew University announced that it would recognize the matriculation results of Palestinian Authority schools. The University will be the first such Israeli academic institution to recognize the Palestinian Authority education system's matriculation, according to a report in the Haaretz newspaper Thursday.

The report stated that the university's decision is expected to lead to a significant rise in the number of Arab students from East Jerusalem who would study in the university.

The university added that during the next few years it would admit students based on their Palestinian Authority matriculation grades on a trial basis. It would then examine their academic success and determine whether to continue to recognize the matriculation grades.
