New for the fall of 2012, Tel Aviv University is proud to inaugurate two international bachelor's degree programs. These programs, delivered entirely in English, are tailored to the specific needs of international students, while still affording access to Tel Aviv University's unique academic environment.
TAU International's BSc in Electrical and Electronics Engineering combines a curriculum devised by world-renowned faculty, along with professional practicums in Tel Aviv, one of the world's premiere high-tech R&D hubs. The program offers eight specialization tracks including electrical devices, electro-optics, control systems, bio-electronics, power engineering, telecommunications, signal processing, and computer systems.
The University's new international BA in the Liberal Arts provides students with the foundations of a strong Liberal Arts education, while empowering them to succeed in an increasingly diverse, complex, and fast-changing world. This three-year program is designed to motivate students to explore beyond the confines of single disciplines, by offering a broad selection in various fields in the Humanities and Social Sciences. At the same time, it ensures focus by allowing concentrated study in Middle Eastern Studies, Philosophy, Literature, Israel and Jewish Studies, Psychology and Psychoanalysis, and Communication and Digital Culture.
In addition, the full gamut of Tel Aviv University's regular undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate programs are open to international students. While some courses at TAU are offered in English, most are conducted in Hebrew. Special preparatory programs for international students and immigrants, such as the Mechina, are available to prepare students for admissions and study at Tel Aviv University.
Admission to university-wide programs is directed through the general Admissions Office on campus. More information is available at the university-wide home site, or on each of the faculties’ individual web pages (see list). A detailed admissions catalogue in English is available online for more information. The university-wide course offering (Yedion) can be accessed online as well. A general TAU catalogue and application form may also be requested by contacting your closest Office of Academic Affairs.
Note to Study-Abroad Students:
The credits earned on the Overseas School's semester and year-abroad programs are TAU credits. Students who wish to continue at TAU after completion of their study-abroad program and pursue a degree from TAU will have their credits approved as TAU-wide credits.
Nevertheless, as curricula vary among departments at TAU, each department will individually determine whether any courses completed fulfill the student's degree requirements.
