Additional Comments:

  • The Faculty offers the “Bina” program in cooperation with the “Atuda” (academic reserves of the Israel Defense Forces).
  • The screening procedure is conducted in two stages:

In the first stage, suitable applicants will be invited (by e-mail) to answer an open questionnaire.

Applicants who do not yet have a psychometric score or a Mechina grade average will be invited but their status will be "pending".

The questionnaire will take place solely on Friday, May 12, 2017. Registration is by credit card.

 In the second stage, based on the results of the questionnaires, suitable applicants will be invited for a series of short personal interviews. The interviews will be held in July and require payment of an additional fee. Mechina students and those allowed to take the Psychometric Test in July will be interviewed during September.

Failure to arrive for one of the admission stages will be construed as cancellation of one's candidacy.
