University studies provide you with many opportunities for personal growth and independence. Yet having to acclimate to a new environment, both socially and scholastically, may also lead to pressure and stress. Sometimes these challenges can be overwhelming and may trigger emotional vulnerabilities, especially for international students embarking on a journey far from home.
Here at the Technion International we are here to help. Our trained staff provides professional individual counseling for issues ranging from academic problems to personal matters. Group sessions are also offered for help with time management and learning strategies.
We are committed to providing discrete and confidential counseling services which respect the dignity and values of all people.
Counseling services are offered to undergraduate students from the preparation period through their entire academic stay at Technion. Graduate students are also invited to make an appointment as needed.
Our services include:
- Assisting students to adapt to life in Israel and integrating into life at the Technion
- On-going counselling and emotional support
- Referrals/facilitating access to campus resources (tutoring)
- Guiding students with time management skills, organizational tips, and learning strategies
- Initial counselling for students in crisis or with acute difficulties
- Facilitating the process of acquiring accommodations needed for students with learning disabilities
Security and Safety
Technion International takes the safety and well-being of its students very seriously.
The university operates a 24-hour monitoring system that always includes a network with security guards stationed at the university entrances and security units patrolling the campus grounds. Although there are occasional security tensions in Israel, in the nearly 93 years of its existence, Technion has never suffered a security breach. International students are provided with updated security information and instructions about staying safe during their orientation program and throughout the year. Organized trips around Israel offered throughout the year are run in conjunction with the relevant security authorities. We want our students to get to know Israel, feel comfortable, and stay safe while traveling on their own, which is why we suggest that they let our administrative staff know of their plans to leave Haifa so that we can assist them in their travel plans. Our students’ safety and security is our top priority.
