The program is intended for students who have successfully completed at least 2 semesters at Reichman University.
Necessary conditions to apply to the program include:
- Good academic and judicial standing, with no previous disciplinary problems at Reichman University.
- Excellent English skills, in speaking, reading and writing.
- Grade point average of 80 and above. Higher GPA awards an advantage.
- Submit a completed IDC Student Exchange Application by the appropriate deadline.
- Psychology and Communication students, may only study abroad in their 7th semester (fall semester of the “fourth year”). This means that you can only participate after you have completed three years of studies.
The semester abroad will replace the academic semester at IDC. Many institutions abroad start their Fall semester in the beginning of September and it lasts through the end of December.
Note that this overlaps the end of the summer break at IDC, and leaves some time between the end of the semester abroad and the beginning of the second semester at Reichman University.
Reichman University students accepted to the exchange program, must verify, courses at the host institution coincide with their Reichman University study plan.
The list of courses/study plan you have chosen for your semester abroad, is subject to final approval by your academic coordinator and academic advisor.
Reichman University students will continue to pay regular tuition at Reichman University. Tuition payment at the host institution is waived for Reichman University exchange Students.
You may be required to pay an additional administrative or “study abroad” fee to the university you visit.
Note, Psychology and Communications Students who choose to go for the extra semester abroad (“fourth year” fall semester) will not be required to pay tuition.
