How Hard is it to Get into IDC Herzliya


The Israeli Institute of Technology, known as IDC Herzliya, is one of the top universities in Israel. It offers a wide range of degrees and specializations for students in various fields, including engineering and economics. The university has an acceptance rate that is much lower than average admission rates at other colleges. However, according to data from the past few years, it seems like the process of getting into IDC Herzliya isn't impossible—it's just very competitive! Here are some tips on how to increase your chances:

Work experience

For applicants who are seeking to study a master's degree, the process is slightly different. In this case, you will need to have relevant work experience and provide proof that you can do the job. For example, if you want to study computer science and programming at IDC Herzliya in Israel, then it would be necessary for you to submit your resume with a list of projects you’ve worked on as a programmer. Your experience will also include any certificates or certifications that speak directly about your skillset—for example: ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) certificate or AWS certification for cloud computing engineers.

Personal experience

There are many different factors that determine whether or not you will get into IDC Herzliya, including your GPA and SAT scores.

I have been lucky enough to be accepted into the Information Systems department at IDC Herzliya. In order to get accepted into this program, you must have completed high school with a minimum of 80 hours of English as well as 70 hours of general studies courses. You must also take two years worth of math courses (including geometry), two years worth of science courses (including biology), one year worth of social studies and one year worth of English literature/language arts classes.

Additionally, there are various other requirements related to your GPA: if it's below 3.0 then you won't get accepted; if it's below 3.5 then there is a higher chance that you'll be rejected; if it's between 3.5-4 then there is an even better chance that you'll be rejected; and finally if it's above 4 then chances are very likely that they will accept you!

College student

To get into IDC Herzliya, you need to apply early and make sure you are applying to the program that is right for you. A good way to know if a program is right for you is by asking your college about it. If your college does not have any experience with the program in question, then contact other colleges and ask them about their experiences with that particular program.

If your college recommends an IDC Herzliya program that interests you, then make sure that they can help write a letter of recommendation on your behalf.


The most important factor in the evaluation process is your employer. It is often said that getting into the IDC Herzliya is like buying a car: if you have an Israeli company, then it's easy to get in; if not, then it's hard. If your employer isn't located in Israel, or has fewer than three employees (or even just one employee), then you might have trouble getting accepted into the program.

The only way to get around these restrictions is by applying for one of their International Master's Programs (IMP) or Global Research Institute Program (GRIP). The IMP and GRIP programs do not require employers to be registered in Israel--but they do tend to be very competitive and selective!

What to expect in Israel

  • What to expect in Israel:

  • The weather is warm and sunny most of the year, with occasional rain showers in the winter.

  • Israeli culture values hard work, intelligence, and creativity. Most Israelis are very friendly people who are willing to help a stranger if they can.

  • The food is delicious! You will find many types of cuisine here including falafel (deep fried chickpea balls), shawarma (meat sandwich), hummus (chickpea dip) and so much more! This isn't your typical American cuisine; you will be surprised by how different it tastes!

  • Things to do while visiting Israel:

  • Visit the beach! It's only 2 hours away from Jerusalem by bus or car ride so why not take advantage while you have the time off? There are many beaches around Tel Aviv that have great restaurants nearby too if you want to spend all day there like I do!"

What specific steps should I take to get into IDC Herzliya

If you want to get into IDC Herzliya, there are a few things you can do:

  • Apply for admission. The application process takes about two months, and includes a writing test, interview, and academic evaluation.

  • Get accepted. If your application is successful, you'll receive an offer of acceptance with conditions like proof of financial stability (if applicable).

  • Apply for a visa at the Israeli consulate in your country. Most countries require a student visa before they allow their citizens entry into Israel as students; however, some countries have agreements with Israel that allow their citizens automatic access without needing a visa beforehand if they're studying within certain fields or programs at an accredited university like IDC Herzliya. These agreements include Australia's Recognised Student Visa Program (RSVP), Germany's Recognised Exchange Program Agreement (REPA), Italy's Erasmus+ Programmes Agreement and Student Mobility Agreements between Israel and Luxembourg and Norway which allows students from these countries unlimited travel throughout Europe during their studies without needing additional documentation when crossing borders between member states under Schengen Area rules."


The IDC Herzliya is a great place to start your journey in the world of education. The school offers a wide range of courses, including law, business management, computer science and many more. Their goal is to bring together students from all over the world who are interested in studying at their institution.
