The academic year will begin with the Orientation Week on Sunday, October 7, 2018.


One of the innovative and important services that the Interdisciplinary Center provides to its students is a week-long orientation for first-year students. This orientation week is designed to make students' entry into the academic environment as smooth as possible.

First-year students begin their studies on campus a week earlier than the upperclassmen. They spend this week meeting their future classmates, faculty and staff. They also participate in discussions and lectures about the structure of IDC's academic programs, campus services and facilities. In addition, students are instructed in the use of the library, computer laboratories and databases. Orientation week is organized and run by IDC faculty and upperclassmen, who serve as counselors.


Orientation Week is vital preparation for succeeding at IDC Herzliya and participation in it is mandatory.


RRIS has a team of peer counselors who are  students. Every counselor is assigned a number of freshmen students and will accompany you from the first day of Orientation Week throughout your first year at IDC.

Your peer counselor will contact you shortly before your arrival to campus (either for the preparatory courses or Orientation Week).
