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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
