For graduate level courses the passing grade is 65. International students have the option to live in on-campus housing. On our modern campus, student dorms include six-person apartment units that consist of a shared kitchen and bathroom. Bedrooms are shared, equipped with 2 beds, 2 closets and 2 desks. No linen or kitchenware is provided. Dorm rooms are limited and must be arranged at least 3 months in advance through Technion International. On-campus housing is not guaranteed, but all students accepted to the program may apply. More information about housing, including affordable off-campus options, can be found here.
International students will easily integrate into student life at Technion, which supports a diverse, multicultural student community. You will be invited to an Orientation Day, designed to get you acquainted with peers, student life, and living essentials in Israel. On campus, you’ll have access to a wide range of sports facilities (including an Olympic sized pool) and participate in a variety of social and cultural activities, lectures, and trips to enrich your study-abroad experience. Off campus, you will have all the resources of beautiful Haifa, Israel’s third largest city located on the Mediterranean Sea.
Technion International’s comprehensive Orientation Day is designed to familiarize students with the campus and surrounding neighborhoods, and to provide a general guide to student life in Israel. You will be presented with guidance on matters such as acquiring a student card, email account and internet access code, cell phone plan, and getting around the sprawling Technion campus, your dormitory, and Haifa.
