Information for Accepted Students
Confirmation of Acceptance
- Accepted applicants are required to fill out the Confirmation Form (also available in the student portal) and pay the $1000 USD confirmation fee within a month of being accepted in order to secure their place in the program. The confirmation fee is considered the first payment of the program's tuition fee, and is subtracted from the total amount due. The confirmation fee cannot be paid through scholarships or payment plans and must be paid in full by the student. Payment can be made by credit card or bank transfer; however, bank transfers generally take 45-60 days to arrive. It is preferred to pay by credit card.
- Accepted students will need to obtain a student visa from the nearest Israeli embassy or consulate before arrival, which can take up to 2-3 months for approval. All applicants should verify if the country which issued their passport allows travel to Israel. Generally you must apply for a visa in the country of your passport.
- Tuition for 2016/2017 is $16,500 USD for the entire program (3 semesters). Tuition includes academic fees, access to campus libraries, academic trips and site visits throughout the year, health insurance, and membership in the Student Union.
- Students wishing to pursue a thesis will be required to pay $5000 USD for the thesis component of the program, which includes a dedicated thesis advisor or advisors, access to university facilities including libraries and databases, the ability to audit courses as needed, health insurance, and membership in the Student Union. If a fifth semester is required, the student will be charged an additional $500.
- There is a limited amount of on-campus housing available for international graduate students; the majority of master's students prefer to live in rented apartments throughout Tel Aviv-Yafo. For further information about dormitories please see the following link. The deadline for on-campus housing registration is the end of May; students requesting placement in dorms after this deadline will be put on a waiting list. All questions related to dorms should be directed to the TAU International office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- The Conflict Resolution and Mediation Program has a limited number of partial scholarships for accepted students based upon financial need, merit, and geographical diversity. Additionally, external organizations provide some financial aid. Information about current scholarships can be found on our scholarships page.
