Live in Israel, Study in English 


Whether you are interested in studying at IDC for one semester or one year, we offer top-tier academic courses taught entirely in English. Your coursework can count toward your major, minor or elective requirements at your home institution. As a Study Abroad student you will be able to choose courses across IDC's schools and build a tailor-made schedule catered to your interest and academic requirements.


Important to note that by participating in our Study Abroad program, you are signing up to take courses from our various programs, but it does NOT mean you are enrolled in one of our undergraduate degree programs.

Study Abroad vs. Exchange


We have two options for people wanting to study at IDC yet do not want to earn their BA/MA degree from IDC. If your university has an exchange agreement with IDC, then you would need to go through our department of Student Exchange and Global Engagement by contacting Ms. Nina Singer at Nina.Singer@idc.ac.il. To check if your school has an exchange agreement with IDC, you can click here to view a list of our partnerships.


If your university does not have an exchange partnership with IDC, then you can attend IDC through our Study Abroad program.
