Overall Experience
I learned so much about the different societal, environmental, and social elements that make up Israel. I learned about how gratifying it is to study side by side with people who are passionate about Israel like I am. This experience was very worth while. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Tel Aviv University: Tel Aviv - Undergraduate Semester in Israel
I learned so much that it's incredible. I wish I was still there. Israelis are known for their strong will, independence, pride, generosity, and graciousness. Since I was there for four months, I had the pleasure of being more than just a tourist. I coached skydiving to an Israeli, translated a web developing system from Hebr... - Ohio University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Tel Aviv University: Tel Aviv - Undergraduate Semester in Israel
While I was abroad, I grew into the person that I am today. I am a strong and independent woman and before I studied in Israel, I was sheltered and did not realize how much more was out there in the world. The lifestyle, culture, and sites of Tel Aviv are incredible and if I could, I would do it all over again, even the summer h... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
While abroad I took a large leap forward and matured. When returning home I was prepared and anxious to take on any experience and opportunity that came my way. - University of Vermont View Entire Review
I learned about and experienced the real Israel (good stuff and bad). Definitely worthwhile. Tel Aviv is one of the most beautiful and exciting cities I have been too. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Met lots of amazing people, and yes definitely worthwhile - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I pushed myself out of my comfort zone--since the program did not facilitate too much cultural immersion, I sought out opportunities myself. I had a great experience, for example, when I joined a salsa class by myself that was taught in Hebrew to Tel Aviv University students. I also enjoyed my classes and made an effort to get t... - Tufts University View Entire Review
I have realized that Israel will always be a place in my heart and be a place that I will continue visiting and supporting for the rest of my life. I learned it is important to be more easygoing and not stress about little things. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
It was an amazing experience regardless of the program's shortcomings. I fell in love with the country and the people. I felt like a better version of myself when I was there and was more engaged with things I normally wouldn't have found interest in in America (ie. hiking, spontaneous explorations). While I committed to startin... - SUNY Purchase View Entire Review
Past Review Jewish Homeland
Yes, I learned so much about myself and my Jewish heritage - University of the Pacific View Entire Review
I now plan on double majoring in English and Jewish Studies instead of majoring in English with a minor in Middle Eastern Studies. I am now both more interested in and fearful of politics. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review Tel Aviv
It was amazing. I made great friends, and was in an awesome country. I felt safe the whole time. The classes were interesting and very relevant. The staff was friendly. The organized trips were a ton of fun. The social scene was better than any other I've ever experienced. - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
Absolutely worthwhile. Though it took a few days before I decided I didn't want to transfer to another, more serious program in Israel, it turned out to be an incredible experience. A great chance to party, get cultural exposure, and really learn about life in the region and in Israel. So many opportunities to explore the region... - Tufts University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Tel Aviv University: Tel Aviv - Undergraduate Semester in Israel
Studying at TAU International was a memorable experience. Meeting new people from all over the world in such a beautiful environment made me feel like home. I never felt alone even though the majority of the students were from North America and I am from Europe. We had a lot of social activities and trips. The structures of our ... - Tel Aviv University View Entire Review
I gained a fundamentally new knowledge of the relationship between Israel and the United States. For those looking to challenge themselves, Israel provides many options. For those looking to party all the time, that is also an option. - Tulane University View Entire Review
Where do I begin! I learned what it's like to live in Tel Aviv: from grocery shopping, to public transportation, local cuisines - and all the while learning how to grow from the experience. It was life changing. - California State University - Chico View Entire Review
Absolutely worthwhile - Tufts University View Entire Review
Definitely the best semester of my college experience. I had been looking forward to studying abroad since freshmen year and my program and time in Tel Aviv did not disappoint. Tel Aviv is a great place to go, as there are many opportunities to be with Israelis and feel like less of a tourist. After visiting my friends studying ... - Cornell University View Entire Review
I learned the incredible impact a culture and people can have on me. I have learned to question and challenge every persons believes including myself. To To never be afraid to stand up for what I believe in and know is right, no matter the situation. To both protect others and try hard not to be a bully or stay silent when someo... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I also was exposed to a lot of the media coverage Israel was receiving in the states but, living here myself for the six months made me realize how cultured and incredible the country is. The pride the citizens hold for their own country is remarkable and how modern Tel Aviv has become, no one would believe me. I came back a str... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
I loved it - amazing new friends and so many great memories. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I understood a better view of Israeli culture from an inside's perspective-life, school, people, and definitely politics. I lived with a Palestinian from the West Bank, and that alone helped me change my views of the Arab-Israeli conflict, something I've been struggling with my entire life, and even moreso now. Living here as de... - University of Hartford View Entire Review
YES! Language and interpersonal skills, interesting classes, lots of tourism time...a great blend! - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review
Absolutely. Going abroad was the best decision that I made in college. I wanted to go to Australia, but that didn't work out, but Israel exceeded my expectations. I became much more independent and my self-confidence grew significantly while I was abroad. I'm definitely more away of the political climate in the Middle East and n... - University of Rochester View Entire Review
I feel as though the experience is what you put into it. If you are looking for an American style experience in which you feel comfortable it is there, or you can stretch yourself and live in the city. Whatever you are looking for, it is there. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
