Rollins College offers students the opportunity to study at Tel Aviv University for an academic year or a semester. Program highlights include:
Founded in 1956, Tel Aviv University is one of Israel’s premier institutions with 30,000 students, including 1,000 international students, and globally recognized faculty. Visiting study abroad students are housed within the Overseas Students Program. There are many opportunities for integration with local and other international students.
Tel Aviv is a city of just over 400,000 located on the Mediterranean coast of Israel. Tel Aviv is considered the cultural and economic capital of Israel and offers students a plethora of things to see and do from lounging on the famed beaches or shopping in Jaffa’s famed flea market to attending a performance of the Israeli Opera or checking out a Maccabi Tel Aviv football (soccer) match. Tel Aviv is also noted for its many restaurants featuring Israeli and international cuisine and for a lively nightlife. Tel Aviv University’s main campus is in Ramat Aviv, the suburb just north of Tel Aviv and only a quick fifteen-twenty minute bus or taxi ride to the city center. Tel Aviv’s central location in Israel also makes it fabulous location for exploring Israel’s many historical and cultural sites and dramatic landscapes. Students studying at Tel Aviv University can easily take buses to Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, Masada and more.
