We offer top-tier academics courses taught entirely in English. Study Abroad students are invited to select courses from the various schools and faculties at IDC Herzliya and are not restricted by subject. 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. Students are strongly advised to consult their home institution on intended courses of study. Acceptance into selected courses will be determined by the Student Administration for incoming students, in consultation with the relevant faculty members if necessary. Following admission, Study Abroad students work with an academic advisor to build a personal schedule and select relevant courses according to what is offered each semester and in consideration of necessary prerequisites. Your coursework can count toward your major, minor or elective requirements at your home institution. Also, you can intern in one of our thirty-two research centers, benefit from our enriching cultural activities and meet students coming from more than eighty-six countries, making IDC the most international academic center in Israel.


The Course Handbook is available for you to check which the courses are offered at IDC. You can search per topic, school, professor, etc.

Masa Israel Journey

Masa Israel Journey is home to the widest variety of hand-crafted long-term international experiences in Israel.

Participants get a life changing Journey; a lifelong professional and social network; and a generous subsidy.

The Jewish Agency and the Israeli Government co-sponsor the Masa project to encourage young Jews who are not Israeli residents to study in Israel. Students up to the age of thirty-one, who have not been to Israel on a long term program before, are eligible for a grant from Masa to go towards tuition at the Raphael Recanati International School.


Students will receive an initial grant based on their country of origin and can apply for additional funding of up to $10,000 US which is awarded based on financial need.

Application forms for Masa must be completed online at www.masaisrael.org Please note, Masa is an independent initiative and therefore its criteria for evaluating scholarship requests may differ from those used to evaluate requests for the Raphael Recanati International School Scholarships.
