Courses can be selected from the entire range offered by the Feinberg Graduate School at the Weizmann Institute. In addition, reading courses are routinely organized by individual scientific groups and, in special cases, courses can be taken at other campuses. Individual course programs will be tailored for each student in consultation with a faculty adviser. Please consult "Prospective student information" and the Feinberg Graduate school regulations.
