About

History

It came into being through the dedicated efforts of visionaries who foresaw the need for an additional university in Israel. In the 1930s, the idea was promoted by then mayor of Tel Aviv, Meir Dizengoff, with whose encouragement two post-secondary education facilities were opened during the British Mandate period: The Biological-Pedagogical Institute and the School of Law and Economics.

Education

  • Our 60+ English-led academic programs are designed to empower our diverse student body to grow academically, socially and personally.
  • Thousands of talented students from around the globe study across all academic levels - from a semester, summer, or year abroad to Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. degrees. Curriculums are facilitated by Israel’s leading faculty and experts and enhanced by hands-on workshops, professional internships, and unforgettable excursions throughout the country.

Research

TAU is one of Israel's most important research centers, engaged in more than 5,000 innovative projects in classic disciplines and in cutting-edge fields from bioinformatics to nanotechnology. That's why more than 150 of the world's leading academic and corporate institutions regularly conduct joint programs on campus.

Services

Housing services

  • TAU International full time students are eligible to live in TAU provided housing pending availability. TAU housing includes the Einstein dormitories complex, which is adjacent to campus (based on availability) and the Broshim dormitories complex, located about 10 minutes walking distance from the Einstein dormitories on the other side of campus. The Broshim dorms are generally single rooms (reserved primarily for MA students or PhD/PostDoc pending availability).
  • Depending on enrollment, there may be cases where students are housed in off-campus TAU apartments (provided their home school approves of this). The TAU apartments are in the city center within a 30-minute commute of the campus. 

Library services

  • The David J. Light Law Library is at the forefront of academic law libraries in Israel - maintaining one of the largest collections of legal publications and resources in the country.
  • Our collection consists of over 177,000 printed items and a wide range of electronic resources, journals and e-books which are accessible to on and off-campus computers. 

Medical services

Every student/visiting researcher is required to be covered by Israeli health insurance while studying in Israel. While most international programs* include health insurance as part of their tuition fees, research students/ fellows, students on individual tracks and students in TAU’s programs are not covered and are required to obtain their own Israeli health insurance.

Student Life

Campus life

Situated in the heart of Israel’s coastal region, Tel Aviv University resides on a spacious 220 acre campus. Located in suburban Ramat Aviv, just north of the city, the University is minutes away from downtown Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv University’s proximity to the cultural and commercial capital of Israel allows students to absorb the best of Israeli society.

Sports facilities

In response, Tel Aviv University has committed itself to promoting a healthy, balanced lifestyle on campus. Open 361 days of the year, 7 days a week and 20 hours per day, the Tel Aviv University Sports Complex serves over 2 million users annually. Located on the northwest corner of campus, the administration, management and operation of the Complex is divided between three bodies: the Elite Sports Center Company; the Sports, Culture and Recreation Club; and the Unit for Sports and Physical Education.

Student clubs

  • The Buddy System is a student-to-student program developed by the TAU Student Union International Affairs office in an effort to create bonds between its Israeli and international students.
  • The program is run by a board of Israeli students, all of whom have been awarded Student Union scholarships, to plan joint activities including  special events, lectures, volunteering opportunities, and trips for both groups.

Accreditation

Tel Aviv University is accredited by the Israeli Ministry of Education and the Council for Higher Education. In the United States, Tel Aviv University participates with the Department of Education’s FFEL Program.
