Outgoing Students at Technion
Technion undergraduate students can expand their horizons and their academic experience by spending some of their academic study time abroad.
Technion Student Exchange Program allows undergraduate students spend a semester or a year abroad at Technion Partner Universities,and use such studies as partial credits toward their Technion degree.
Our list of exchange opportunities will be posted in the next couple of weeks.
Students must apply for studies abroad through the Outgoing Exchange Coordinator. Students who are considering signing up for a Technion Student Exchange program must apply in the fall semester of the academic year prior to their expected travel, for the following academic year (fall and spring semester). Every year Technion International organizes a meeting for Technions student interested in studying abroad. The info session for Engineering and Science students was held on November 7, 2018 at the

Before starting – get familiar with the following definitions
- Student-Exchange is a program that allows students to study at a foreign university who is an exchamge partner of the Technion, while paying regular tuition to the Technion.
- Study-Abroad is a program that allows students to study at any foreign university (not exchange partner) while paying full tuition to the foreign university.
- Partner University is a university with whom the Technion has signed a collaboration agreement. Some partner universities include student exchange agreements, allowing students to visit in a Student Exchange program. Student exchange agreement might include all Technion Faculties or might be only with specific faculties within the Technion.
- Home Faculty refers to the faculty at the Technion where the student is studying and registered.
- Host University refers to the foreign university in which a student visits and studies either in a Student Exchange or a Study Abroad program.
- GE3 – Global E³ is an exchange program for engineering students: a student can study abroad while continuing to pay tuition at home. With member universities in over 20 countries, students at over 70 universities have the opportunity to study abroad. Global E³ exchanges about 250-300 students a year.Students are nominated by their home institution and receive credit at home for academic work completed abroad. They study overseas in a member institution for one or two semesters, typically in their junior year.
Choosing your host university
In order to decide which university is the right choice for you, Technion International recommends checking the following information:
- Semester dates – which semester is most suitable for your travels, taking your studies and the Technion semester dates into consideration
- Course catalog – does the university you are interested in offer courses that are relevant to your degree?
- Cost of living – will you be able to afford the cost of living in city where the host university is based?
In order to find this information, Technion International recommends going to the host university’s international office’s website and more specifically search for the incoming exchange website.

Tales from Abroad
Studying abroad provides a double benefit for students: in addition to the academic benefits of a study experience at a university abroad and strengthening language skills, students experience tremendous personal growth. We encourage our out-bound students participating on exchange programs to share with us their experience – for the benefit of other Technionites thinking about applying for an exchange program abroad.
First in GIST – My Amazing South Korean Experience
Written by: Shereen Sirhan, Student at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management “I enjoyed every minute of my stay in Gwangju: I learned many new practical skills in the laboratory, and gained more academic experience and proficiencies. I met new people, enjoyed interacting with them, discussed different issues and learned a lot from our similarities and differences. The internship was very useful for me on many levels. Therefore, I strongly recommend other students to try this experience, and hope they will enjoy and learn as much as I did.” Continue reading…
