Study Abroad


Studying abroad can be an exhilarating, life-affirming experience.

It prepares you for a breadth of challenges and opportunities. You can conduct research, perform service, or complete an internship.

At Tel Aviv University, it can change the way you see the world.

TAU is the most prolific academic institution in Israel. It is Israel’s largest research institution, investing $150M/year. And ranks #18 in Citations Per Faculty according to QS 2013 World Rankings. Citations are the most widely accepted measure of research strength.

TAU is also the most entrepreneurial academic institution in Israel. It was no. 16 on the 2013 list of universities producing founders of US-funded startups and, in 2015 Tel Aviv was #5 in the Global Startup Ecosystem Ranking.

TAU is also the cultural heart of Israel. TAU alumni have received six Oscar® nominations for best foreign-language film.

And the University's 1,200 international students are more than triple any other Israeli academic institution. MORE

Learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom, with regular site visits, guest lectures, and excursions designed to give you access to the cutting edge of research and industry.

Summer Learning: Food Security and Safety

A poster child for TAU's important international work is the first Manna Summer Program in Food Safety and Security. One hundred students are attending the two-week program from 13 countries. What's inspiring and heartening is that, despite the security situation, these students (and most others in our international summer programs) are staying the course. For example, food technologist Rhitah Nabirye, 25 years old and from Uganda, is gaining wider perspectives on energy, economics and policy making that she can apply to urban farming back home. Angela Siele, a 26-year-old Cornell University student from Kenya, intends to set up a women's empowerment program in small scale agriculture in Tanzania, and Kristin Bruce, 26, is learning about global aspects of food and water security that she'll be taking back to the University of Saskatchewan, Canada.

Kristin told us that "when the sirens first went off, I was a little scared but the staff at the dorms immediately ushered us into the shelters and gave us information on how to conduct ourselves. The communication network here at TAU is amazing."
