Admission to master's degree studies is open to applicants with an undergraduate degree in biology or a similar subject, awarded by Tel Aviv University or another recognized university, with a final grade of at least 80, on condition that the admissions committee of the department in which they intend to carry out their research work has approved their admission. The departmental admissions committees will discuss the admission of applicants regardless of the chosen track.
Applications for admission to master's degree studies at the Graduate School can be submitted up to the end of May. Third year undergraduate students who have a chance of achieving the required grades are entitled to submit an application before completing their degree requirements. These applicants will be admitted on an irregular basis, and must complete all the requirements for entitlement to an undergraduate degree within one month of the start of the academic year.
Students who are entitled to a scholarship or teaching appointment must achieve entitlement to an undergraduate degree by the end of September.
Applicants must state the department in which they wish to study and carry out their research work on the registration form.
The departmental admissions committees will discuss applicants on the basis of their grade sheets and/or interviews held during July.
During August they will discuss the applications of students who have registered late or as second preference, after being rejected from their first preference (in most cases, third preferences will not be discussed).
