Online format of the event has increased number of participants from all across Israel.
This years TAU Open Day took place on February 1-2, 2022 and comprised 165 Zoom meetings where potential incoming students could learn about various study programs for B.A.s and more advanced degrees, take advantage of personal counselling sessions, receive tips on how to choose a suitable field of study for oneself and more.
More than 16,000 potential future TAU students joined the online Zoom sessions where they met and interacted with the academic and administrative staff, current students and graduates of their field of interest.
This year, there was a particularly strong interest for TAU’s new undergraduate program in Data Science, the undergraduate program in hi-tech sciences, and the innovative Master Trek tracks in Engineering. Many were also interested, probably due to the corona, in the Master of Science in Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine (M.Sc.).
A total of 50 ultra-Orthodox Jews candidates attended a meeting on graduate studies within the framework called Trailblazers: The Program for Integrating the Ultra-Orthodox into Tel Aviv University.
Also very popular were sessions offering tips for how to choose a field of study; alternative admission routes to the regular entrance exam and how one may improve one’s chances of admission by taking online courses.
The Open Day marked the opening of the registration season for the academic year 2022/23.
