Tel Aviv University is Israel's largest and most comprehensive institution of higher learning and offers multidisciplinary courses on a campus that is as dynamic as Israel itself.
Tel Aviv is a bustling, cosmopolitan city situated on the Mediterranean. It is known for its first rate symphony, theater and galleries.
Courses and Credits
Multiple summer programs are available. The programs offer a rich variety of exciting courses in the fields of International Relations, Social Sciences, Arts, Environmental Studies, History, Religion, Business and many more. Each course awards 3 semester credits, for a total of up to 15 undergraduate level credits per semester (21 credits with Ulpan, see below).
Each semester program is preceded by a mandatory Intensive Hebrew course (Ulpan), offering students at different levels of language proficiency the ability to substantially develop their Hebrew skills. The Ulpan awards students 6 semester credits upon successful completion. Native Hebrew speakers may request to take an Ulpan-exemption test when confirming their participation, but not later.
All coursework will be done for graded Ohio State credit. Specific Ohio State course equivalences and credits will be determined by the appropriate Ohio State academic departments.
The student dormitories are all conveniently located within walking distance from the Tel Aviv University campus. Dormitories are divided into suites of one or two bedrooms shared by two students per bedroom. Each suite is furnished and includes a kitchenette and bathroom. All long term students (semester/year) are housed in our newly renovated Einstein dorms. Each room has a new kitchen and bathroom, air conditioning and wifi.
