Undergraduate Degree Programs

 

 

Degree Programs and Admission Requirements

 

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.

In some programs there is an acceptance score and rejection score. Applicants whose score is between the two, will be on a waiting list until a final score is determined.

Some programs use only one type of score (e.g. general score for Medicine, QE - Quantitative Emphasis 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 Emphasis 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 calcualated 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.

All applicants must meet all the admission requirements before the deadline. Once a program closes for further applications, all applicants missing criteria or that have been conditionally accepted will be rejected, with the exception of 2021 Rothberg Mechina students.
In some programs, once the missing document/score is submitted, applicants may ask to be included on the waiting list.

Additional Comments for the Faculty of Dental Medicine:

The last valid Psychometric Entrance Test is March 2021, excluding Rothberg International School Mechina current students, academic reserve students (Atuda).

The screening procedure is conducted in two stages. Failure to arrive for one of the admission stages will be construed as cancellation of one's candidacy:

·         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". Final dates have not been finalized yet. We will update the website accordingly.

·         In the second stage, based on the results of the questionnaires, suitable applicants will be invited for two short interviews. Some applicants with significantly high scores will receive notice that they are exempt from the questionnaire. 

Due to the current situation, the questionnaires might take place in a computerized format. Candidates will be informed in time. The questionnaires will take place on 4.6.2021. The date is subject to change, any change of date will be announced in advance.
The interviews will be held in three rounds. The first two rounds are designated for candidates who are exempt from the questionnaire.

  • During the first round, taking place in April, candidates who have submitted all application documents by 14.3.2021 will be interviewed.
  • During the second round, taking place during the month of May, candidates who have submitted all application documents by 30/4/2021 will be interviewed.
  • Candidates who successfully answered the questionnaire will be invited to an interview during the third round of interviews taking place in July.
