Northwestern has a long-standing partnership with Tel Aviv University, which includes graduate student exchanges in Medicine, Chemistry, Materials Science, and Nanotechnology, as well as joint programs between TAU and Northwestern’s Law School and Kellogg. This exchange program builds on this partnership to allow students to enroll directly at the university. The exchange also brings Israeli students to Northwestern to study.
TAU is a large comprehensive university with strong programs in Math, Computer Science, Physics, Astronomy, Biological Sciences and Engineering. TAU also offers a wide-range of courses in the Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities including Economics, Psychology, Communication Studies, Public Policy, Conflict Resolution, Women and Gender Studies Program, Archaeology, Jewish and Hebrew Studies, as well as Arabic and Islamic Studies. Exchange students will have access to all the programs offered by TAU, and will have access to both Hebrew and English-taught courses offered on campus. For students with Hebrew language skills, the choices will be much greater, but there are courses offered in English in many departments as well as at the Overseas Student office. In addition, there are a number of programs available completely in English, such as a BA in Liberal Arts and a BS in Electrical Engineering.
Northwestern students will be housed in university dorms at the Tel Aviv University campus.
