Undergraduate Degree Programs

 

 

Degree Programs and Admission Requirements

Requirements for the second semester (March 2020) are published separately.

 

The following table lists all departments that offer Bachelor’s degree programs, according to faculty.
Next to the program, you may find the Psychometric Entrance Test scores required for admission of applicants accepted on the basis of a psychometric score alone. Information about the Psychometric Entrance Test is available on the following link.
Next to the Psychometric Entrance Test score you will find the required score on the new SAT (since March 2016). Applicants tested earlier will find a comparable table on the following link. We also accept ACT scores, as listed in the table. General information about the SAT is available on the following link.

Some programs use only one type of score (e.g. general score for Medicine, QE - Quantitative Emphasys score - for the Faculty of Science etc.). Some programs accept the higher score from the general or QE and some program accept the VE (Verbal Emphasys Score) as well and will consider the higher of all types of score. The heading of each table (or next to the department name, if exceptional) we note the type used.
In accordance, the SAT score is listed as an average that can be calcualted in three ways: general score (50% language, 50% math); QE (0.67*math + 0.33*language); VE (0.67*language + 0.33*math).

General admission requirements are detailed, according to country of origin, on the following link.

All undergraduate programs require language proficiency in Hebrew and English.
