TAU International's gap year, study abroad, bachelors degrees and summer programs let students immerse themselves in Israeli culture while advancing their academic career. TAU is for students who challenge themselves with an invigorating academic experience while immersing themselves in the Mediterranean lifestyle.
Join TAU's Academic Gap Year to jump start your college career and get a cultural experience that you will never forget! Academic Gap Year students are integrated with the rest of the year-long study abroad programs for coursework and activities, but receive extra support from our experienced program staff. Take unique courses with students from all over the world, while living immersing yourself into the Israeli culture.
When you're not in class, take advantage of the trips that the TAU counselors organize as well as the many cultural opportunities all over Tel Aviv. Take a dip in the sprawling ocean, grab a cappuccino at a coffee shop, rent a bike and cruise to the magical Rothschild Boulevard, stop off at the shuk and pick up some locally grown fruits and vegetables, dance the night away at a nightclub, check out a local art exhibit, figure out which hummus place is your favorite – become a Tel Avivian!
