    Think of your Gap year experience as a year “on” instead of a year “off”! This one semester or one-year program will take you on a life-changing discovery that will enrich both your academic and personal life. With these additional academic credits, you can even apply for a degree program at TAU!

    You will also have the independence to explore your passions while living on the doorstep of Tel Aviv: Israel’s cultural, commercial and creative center. With the non-stop city for inspiration it’s not surprise that gap students typically go on to display higher academic performance in their undergraduate studies than other students! Students can soak up the culture and invest time in our unique and diverse campus life.

    Students may apply if they will have completed high school/secondary school by the start of the Gap program with a high school GPA of approximately 3.0 (80/100)

    Courses vary from semester to semester, but in general, there is a variety of coursework available in History, Israel Studies, Middle East Studies, Environmental Studies, Jewish Studies, Political Science, Finance, Business, Psychology, International Studies, Arabic, Hebrew, and more! In addition, Gap Year students may be eligible to take courses in STEM and the BA in Liberal Arts program. For more information on these two options, please contact us as there are certain things to be aware of in these fields.
