Cost of Attendance

All fees and expenses listed below are quoted in US dollars.

Below students will find the actual costs to TAU’s programs (actual costs refer to tuition, housing and required/optional Hebrew Ulpan/Language if relevant) as well as guidelines for estimated cost of living in Tel Aviv per month, calculated in USD.

 

This is intended to give students an estimated overall Cost of Attendance (COA) during their program at TAU; each students costs will of course vary depending on where they’re arriving from, lifestyle choices, location of housing (TAU Housing vs. finding housing independently), etc.

For students looking for more specific and detailed information on Tel Aviv cost of living we recommend visiting this site for helpful current estimates on food, transportation, and more.

 

Transportation and groceries costs, as described below, are meant to provide as a guideline for calculating your COA. When doing so, ensure you’re also accounting for leisure activities (e.g. gym membership, sports/fitness classes, hobbies, bars/nightlife, social activities apart from sponsored TAU International Student Life activities, etc.) and any other essential or non-essential elements of your particular lifestyle (e.g. phone plan purchasing).

 

Transportation to and within in Israel

  • Students should research flights according to the times/dates of their program arrival and departure for more exact estimates of airfare from their point of departure
  • Transportation to/from airport on program start and end dates
  • An unlimited bus pass in Tel Aviv is $63 USD/month. Check this website for public transportation costs for travel around Israel for tourism purposes outside of sponsored TAU International Student Life activities.

 

Groceries (including household supplies)

  • Students can estimate $750-900 USD/month for groceries. This describes the estimated cost of 3 meals per day, assuming the majority of meals are cooked/eaten inside the home (all TAU Housing has kitchenettes which make this possible) as well as cleaning products, dishes, kitchen utensils, linens/bedding, and personal toiletries.
  • Note that the costs of living are typically higher upon arrival due to move-in costs, e.g. beddings, dishes, etc.

* Please note for students in Degree Programs (MA, BSc, BA): a non-refundable deposit of the first month’s rent is required in order to reserve dorms. Confirmed students in degree programs who requested on-campus housing will be contacted by the housing department prior to arrival, and all information + payment deadline will be emailed to the email address you registered in the TAU International student portal. If the deposit is not paid by the designated deadline, your dorm reservation will expire and your place in the dorms will be cancelled. You will be able to register to a waiting list, subject to availability. This is for degree programs only; a non-refundable deposit of the first month’s rent, etc. does not apply students on Short Term (Summer) or Semester/Year (Study Abroad and Gap) Programs.
