Academic Calendar

The Academic Calendar is updated each year in October before the start of the new academic year. The calendar and course selections are similar from year to year and are an example of what you can expect in the next year although dates will change. 

  • 2020-2021
  • 2021-2022

In the Israeli system, students are expected to complete papers and assignments during the inter-semester periods; as such, please DO NOT make extensive travel plans until you have a firm understanding of the exam schedule and how much studying (including group work) you will need to do between semesters. 


Please note that exams and final assignments are assigned during the inter-semester exam periods and after the graduation ceremony.
