Courses at IDC Herzliya are taught in both English and Hebrew, and students are expected to be able to matriculate in one of these languages. If English is not your native language, you are expected to provide evidence of an English-proficiency test, such as the TOEFL or IELTS.

The Raphael Recanati International School at IDC Herzliya requires a minimum of 80 on the TOEFL computer-based test, or 6 on the IELTS. In certain cases, this may be waived for incoming students from our partner institutions, provided the home institution can verify the student's English proficiency.

Students who are not from one of our Partner Institutions may apply as a visiting or 'Study Abroad' student. Please visit our Visiting Student section for more details
