Our Study Abroad Partners
Tel Aviv University has been welcoming study abroad students to campus for over fifty years. These students are hosted by TAU International, the department within TAU responsible for the academic, cultural and social aspects of the international student experience as well as for the safety and well-being of these students. TAU International strives for excellence in the field of education abroad, and is a proud member of NAFSA: Association of International Educators and the Forum on Education Abroad. TAU maintains study abroad agreements and affiliations with many top academic institutions in the United States and worldwide and places high priority on making sure the needs of our partners and their students are met during the time they spend at TAU.
In addition to our regular study abroad semester, year or summer programs TAU International also hosts many faculty-led and customized programs each year which are tailored to the needs of our partners. For more information on this type of programming, please visit our Customized & Faculty-Led Programs page.
We are always happy to share with our partners all of the materials that students receive during their time with TAU International, whether it’s our Safety, Security and Wellbeing Guidelines for Students, our Study Abroad Academic Handbook, or any of our Pre-Departure or Arrival Resources. In addition, partners can view our TAU International Study Abroad Calendar to see important dates for their students. (Note: TAU International runs on a slightly different calendar than the rest of TAU in order to better accommodate study abroad students and match the North American semester calendar). If you are having trouble locating a resource, or have a suggestion for a resource you’d like to see developed, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
Academics and Credit Transfer
If you have questions regarding TAU International academic policies and procedures for study abroad students, or regarding credit transfer of TAU International courses to your institution, please email our TAU International Academics Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that all of our course syllabi can be found online (click on the tabs at the top of the page to browse by semester, year).
TAU International’s main office is located in the heart of the TAU campus in Tel Aviv. We also have offices in New York, Toronto and Rio which oversee recruiting, advising, outreach, admissions and enrollment for their respective countries and often work closely with partners to manage institutional relations. A list of contact information for each office can be found here. If you aren’t sure where to best direct your question, Dana Rubin, the TAU International Study Abroad Director (located in Tel Aviv) is always happy to hear from you and direct your question where appropriate.
Partner Visits to TAU
