Academic Prep School

Academic prep schools collaborate with the Faculty of Engineering in Bar Ilan.

The future is here.

In collaboration with Bar Ilan University's Faculty of Engineering, Academic Prep Schools have been established to empower candidates to enhance their knowledge and increase their prospects of pursuing an academic degree in engineering studies. The primary objective is to give students tools and learning habits at a high academic standard, fostering readiness for studies and ensuring their successful integration into the academic realm. These preparatory courses are conducted in a warm, personalized atmosphere, providing professional guidance and support.

Current offerings include:

Mathematics or/and Physics Prep Course (5 credits each):

They are tailored for candidates seeking admission to engineering studies in the upcoming academic year. Enhances grades in mathematics and physics, increasing eligibility for access to an engineering degree. Upon completion, exams in the taught subjects will be accepted as an alternative to matriculation grades at Bar-Ilan University (for those entitled to a matriculation certificate).

Graduates of the Preparatory School will be able to integrate into engineering studies for a bachelor's degree at Bar-Ilan University as early as the upcoming academic year, following the faculty's requirements.

The Faculty of Engineering will award a scholarship to students who will complete a 5-credit preparatory course in mathematics and/or a 5-credit introductory course in physics in the summer of 2023 and will be admitted to the Faculty of Engineering in 2024!

The scholarship amount for a math-focused preparatory school is five units - NIS 2,500.

The scholarship amount for a physics-focused preparatory school is five units - NIS 2,500.

  2. Compliance with all admission requirements of the Faculty of Engineering at Bar-Ilan University.
  3. Registration for engineering studies in the upcoming registration period (2024) - for electrical engineering, computer engineering, industrial engineering and information systems.
  4. Those with suitable data will also be able to study in combined programs in electrical engineering-music, electrical engineering-mathematics, and electrical engineering-physics.
  5. Full-time studies at the Faculty of Engineering at Bar-Ilan University in 2024 only.
  6. The scholarship will be paid during the first year of undergraduate studies.

Dedicated Preparatory School for Engineering and Exact Sciences:

Targeted candidates - candidates not meeting admission requirements (e.g., lack of enrollment, low matriculation average).
