Medical Students Committee

In the Bat Galim neighborhood, near Haifa downtown, lies the campus of the Technion’s Faculty of Medicine. Because of its distance from the Technion main campus, the Medical Students Committee plays an important role in the lives of the students while fulfilling all their academic, social and cultural needs. The committee is the address for students in almost every field of life and therefore has a special structure that is different from the other faculties of the Technion.

Please visit our website for more information including: events and culture, sport center, job offers, housing related activities and volunteering.

Dean of Students

The Greek poet Dionysios Solomos wrote, “Doors are not so easily opened when the needy knock and yearn.” In addition, the students themselves do not always know which door to knock on. This is where the Dean of Students Office comes into the picture. The office is responsible for student aid in the form of scholarships and loans, dormitories and mentoring, psychological counseling, helping reservists and pregnant women, and enriching campus life through social and cultural activities.

Please visit our website for more information including: loans and scholarships, students with disabilities, parental accommodations and career center.

International Students

Students at Technion International can expect a rich and rewarding experience on campus. Technion is home to students from all over the world, with a diverse multicultural atmosphere that creates a vibrant, open and welcoming environment on campus.

Technion offers international students a wide variety of weekly athletic, social and cultural activities as well as top notch recreational facilities. Newcomers will discover that Haifa is a picturesque and dynamic city draped over the perennially green Carmel Mountain, facing the Mediterranean Sea , with comfortable temperatures even in summer. Students can enjoy the lovely Carmel beaches, stroll through renowned garden including the famous Baha’i Gardens and enjoy modern entertainment in the country’s third largest city.
