India International Week

TAU International and the Student Union of Tel Aviv University have crafted three countries' worth of international weeks to enchant you throughout the year. Get ready for a trip of a lifetime, brought to our doorsteps of the University!


India is the next stop in our journey. One of the oldest civilizations in the world, India is a mosaic of multicultural experiences and now the world’s fastest growing major economy. This year marks 30 years of diplomatic relations between India and Israel, giving all the more reason to celebrate this vibrant and dynamic country.


The festivities will run between March 18th and March 24th all over campus, bringing a one-of-a-kind Indian experience to the university.
