About

Tel Aviv University

Location: Tel Aviv
Year Established: 1956
Student population: 30,000
 
About
One of the world’s top universities, Tel Aviv University (TAU) is Israel's largest and most influential institution of higher learning. It’s the most popular among students for its prestige, the quality of its students and the impact of its research. Technology transfer is one of its core activities – it’s been responsible for the development of everything from barcode scanners to bacteria-destroying mouthwash and memory cards.

Highlights
Located in Tel Aviv, the centre of Israel’s industry, business and culture, TAU attracts the brightest students. It’s involved in more than 5,000 innovative research projects. The campus offers a wide range of cultural and social activities including Campus Thursdays, the last day of the Israeli working week when the weekend is kicked off with various activities such as film screenings. Rock music is performed every Wednesday on the large outdoor lawn in front of the Gilman building.
 
Unique characteristics
The University has nine faculties, 29 schools and 98 departments and is particularly recognised for its research in brain studies, nanotechnology, environmental studies, bioinformatics, cyber security, Jewish studies and film. Courses taught in English include business, law, security studies, trauma studies, Israel studies and music.

Location
Established just over a century ago, in 1909, by a group of Jewish families, Tel Aviv has grown to become the country’s second largest city and is modern, diverse and international. It’s the centre of Israel’s high tech industry and commerce – it houses the stock exchange as well as nearly 40 per cent of the country's finance and banking industry – and has a vibrant youth culture, immaculate beaches and sun for most of the year. TAU’s 200-acre campus is the lushest and most beautiful in Israel and has numerous famous buildings showcasing Israeli modern architecture and plastic arts.
