The first semester of the 2011-2012 academic year at Birzeit University began on 5 September 2011 with 9,400 students from across the country.  The new students among them gathered in their new faculties as soon as the formal reception and tour of the University concluded.

 

In a speech delivered to the new class, Dr. Adnan Yahya, Vice President of Academic Affairs, welcomed the new students who have joined the family of BZU. He particularly addressed students of the new Speech and Hearing Therapy Program at the Nursing and Allied Health Professions Faculty. Registration for this program is offered for the first time at BZU, which is the only institution in Palestine to offer this program at the Bachelor’s level.

Dr. Yahya offered students words of wisdom, saying, "The basic advice I would offer all students, especially new students, is the importance of hard work from the beginning. Benefit from the academic material as well as extracurricular activities offered by the University. It is necessary to prepare for classes and make use of instructor office hours, particularly in case you would like to inquire about or participate in academic, athletic, and cultural activities. You can also benefit from the counseling service offered by the Dean of Student Affairs." He asked students to note dates for the various university activities and academic calendar.

The number of new students who are attending the first academic semester of 2011-2012 is around 2,500, while the total number of all students at the various undergraduate faculties is approximately 8,200, in addition to around 1,200 graduate students.
