Foreign Students

Foreign high school graduates are generally required to participate in a preparatory year (Mechina) in order to reach the minimum level of Hebrew. It is highly recommended for candidates who have not studied mathematics and chemistry at a high level to attend summer preparatory courses.


Candidates from abroad who do not have an Israeli matriculation and have not studied in schools where the language of instruction is English must read "Basic" level at the beginning of the academic year in the English Placement Exam.


Application Procedure

To be eligible for admission, applicants must hold a matriculation certificate issued by the Israeli Ministry of Education or an equivalent certificate abroad. The online application is available only in Hebrew at this time. Application forms are available in English for international applicants and may be printed from this link
