​The City Of Herzliya


IDC is located in Herzliya, a city six miles north of Tel Aviv along the Mediterranean coast. For students, Herzliya is an ideal area as it is located in the center of the country and has both train and bus service available to all points throughout Israel. The IDC campus is in a residential neighborhood as are the student apartments – leafy, quiet streets with all the required amenities. Herzliya, which boasts a population of 89,000,  has malls, restaurants and pubs, concert halls, a downtown outdoor street mall with cafes and shops, parks and recreational facilities including jogging and bicycle paths and, of course, a beautiful, white sand beach.


IDC is surrounded by an urban environment that is characterized by a flourishing high-tech sector which has earned Israel the nickname “Silicon Wadi” and has attracted the interest of the world’s leading venture-capital firms. Many of the Israeli software and biotech companies traded on the American stock exchanges are located in the Herzliya area including Hewlett-Packard, Horizon Semiconductors, IBM, Kodak IL, Microsoft, Motorola and Texas Instruments.
