Program description

Academic Gap Year / Semester at Tel Aviv University

Choose your own adventure with our Academic Gap Year or Semester abroad. This program will give you a headstart opportunity by spending a year or semester abroad to explore university life. With a gap under your belt, you'll receive university credits to apply to a degree program, and with these extra credits, you may even be able to complete a university degree sooner than expected. A gap experience is not a year off but actually a year on!.  

Israel is a country ranked #3 for innovation. So what better place to get that headstart than a Reuters Top 100 University, where you’ll discover rigorous and inspiring academic course options. View our latest rankings.  

You may even be able to incorporate an internship into your gap programming (if you have previous work or intern experience) or take our service learning courses (one offered each semester) which give you the chance to volunteer in Tel Aviv communities and make a lasting local impact through your service. 

This program offers you the independence to explore your passions while living in the backdrop of Tel Aviv, Israel’s cultural, commercial, and creative center. No wonder Gap students typically go on to display higher academic performance in their undergraduate studies than other students!

Most of our Gap students enjoy living on campus in our fully furnished dormitories. Our on-campus housing offers 24-hour security, a Student Life Team (called Madrichim) available 24/7 who live on premises, and most importantly, a welcoming and inclusive environment where life extends beyond the classroom. 

Apply now to start your journey of non-stop discovery and innovation, while joining a diverse community at Tel Aviv University.
