Tel Aviv and its booming population, energy, edginess, beautiful beaches and 24-hour lifestyle gives the city a cosmopolitan flair that makes it a perfect destination.

Should we tell you more?

Apart from being really well situated you will get to enjoy our beautiful 220 acre green lively campus filled with 30,000 students many being international as well as many being locals. You will be able to immerse yourself in Israeli culture while at the same time taking fascinating courses taught in English. Our program has Hebrew language classes incorporated that fit your level for the benefit of feeling confident while becoming one more Tel Avivian.

On campus you will find great outdoor facilities as well as indoor facilities.There are many benefits of becoming a Student at Year Abroad, one is that you will have access to a discounted gym rate which offers three pools (one olympic size one) a great indoor gym and an always visited gymnasium. There are tennis courts on campus, as well as volleyball courts spread out throughout the open areas. The campus comes alive with weekly social and cultural events.

Learning outcomes

Most of our students at Tel Aviv University choose to live in our conveniently located fully furnished, modern student housing located within walking distance from the University campus. Housing includes 24-hour security and supportive resident counselors called Madrichim. As part of the TAU International community you don’t have to worry about a support system, since we work really hard to give all of our international students personal attention.

Apart from discovering Tel Aviv and TAU’s campus, we also make sure our students get the chance to see other parts of Israel, and we are very dedicated to facilitating this by providing our international students with organized tiulim (trips) throughout all over the country.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Israel and we are ready for you to join TAU International. We would be happy to help you make it your study abroad home.
