What is campus life like at IDC Herzliya?

Campus life is reminiscent of the atmosphere in a reputable private university in the United States and other regions around the world.

There is never a dull moment at IDC.

How many end up immigrating to Israel or serving in the IDF?

IDC Herzliya caters to students of all backgrounds and its main aim is to provide a superb education to its students. It also gives these students the opportunity to live in Israel for a long enough period of time to weigh the assets and liabilities of living here. Interestingly, 70 percent of our students decide to make Israel their home after graduation, while the others become superb ambassadors for the State of Israel in their communities overseas. A large number of our students decide to join the colors and serve in the IDF upon graduation, many taking the degrees they acquired at IDC and putting them to good use while serving their new country.

Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition at IDC Herzliya is higher than at most Israeli universities, especially because as a private but not-for-profit university we do not request government funding or subsidies. However, we take this into consideration by providing an array of scholarship funds based on socioeconomic need. Besides IDC Herzliya’s own scholarship, others are available from Masa, the Ministry of Absorption and the Jewish Agency (Student Authority), Jewish Federations, like Telfed, Sam Cohen Foundation, NGOs, FAFSA Loans, governmental assistance from certain countries and others.
