Main Regulations of Tuition Fee for a Master’s Degree

 

The fee rate per semester hour, for all persons accepted to master’s degree studies, will be the same in the thesis track and in the non-thesis track.

 

Since the number of hours for a degree is less in the thesis track, a number of hours of study in each department will be entered on account of the thesis, so that the total number of hours is identical in both tracks.

 

 

For example:

In a major where the number of hours without a thesis is 40, the fee rate for one semester hour is 5%. In the same major in the thesis track, the number of hours is 32, and therefore 8 semester hours are entered on account of the thesis in this major, so that the students in both tracks will be charged an identical fee rate and a total of 200% minimum payment for a degree.

 

The method of calculating the tuition fee is according to the following formula:

 

2 (standard years for degree) times 100                          Number of hours                                                 fee percentage

 

                                                                                X                                                             =

 

Number of standard hours for degree                              Actual studies                                                       annual studies

 

 

A. In each of the first two years, the charge is according to the proportionate part of their studies, but not less than 50% of the tuition fee per year (also applies to students enrolled only for language studies).

 

  • Students who started their studies in Semester 2 or discontinued in Semester 1 will be charged a minimum tuition fee of 25%.
  • Students who finish listening to courses in the fourth semester and have accrued a tuition fee of 200% over two years continuously (until the end of the fourth semester) will pay during the second year of their studies tuition fee according to the proportionate part of their studies and ancillary fees without a surcharge and without a minimum tuition fee of 50%.
  • Those students who started their studies for a degree in Semester 2 and the fourth semester falls in Semester 1 of the third year of studies will be entitled to pay in Semester 1 (fourth semester) according to the proportionate part of their studies (without any minimum) only if they finished listening to courses for a degree in this semester. If they are registered also for courses in Semester 2, they will be charged in the third year according to the proportionate part of their studies, as set forth in section B below.

 

B. In the third and fourth year (from the date of commencement of their studies in a program) the charge will be according to the amount of hours, with a prolonged studies charge).

Students who study in a scope of 50% tuition fee and more, the prolonged studies charge will be canceled.

Students in the MD/MPH track are exempt from the prolonged studies charge in the third and fourth year of the master’s degree.

 

C. Starting from the fifth year (from the date of commencement of their studies in a program) the charge will be according to the amount of hours, with a prolonged studies charge.

 

D. Students submitting a paper in Semester 2 or examined in an examination in Semester 2 relating to a course they studied in Semester 1, will not be charged an additional payment in Semester 2. This decision does not apply to the submission of a thesis, a final examination or any assignment unrelated to a course registered in Semester 1.

 

E. During their studies for a master’s degree, students are entitled, with the approval of the faculty, to study up to 6 surplus semester hours for enrichment purposes (beyond the cap of hours for a degree), at no cost (in Semester 1 and/or 2).

 

The financial credit will be given at the end of the studies on the basis of the department’s approval (subject to the regulations specified in sections A to C above).

 

Students are required to contact the department office upon completion of their studies. Below are the criteria according to which the faculty will approve a surplus course:

 

1. The course does not replace a course in which the student failed.

2. The course does not replace a mandatory course or course constituting a precondition for another course from the degree courses.

3. The course is not a course in which the requirements were not satisfied (where the final grade therein is 260/230/250, 220, 240, 350).

4. The course does not constitute a repetition of a course already taken.

 

Students who received an academic exemption for courses studied at Tel Aviv University in supplementary studies or surplus hours in a bachelor’s degree, will be charged the difference between the tuition fee rate required according to their field of studies in the master’s degree and the payment paid for any course/s within the framework of their studies in the supplementary studies.

 

1. Students who have been accepted to a year of supplementary studies (in a special status) – the Tuition Fee Regulations for Special Status Students will apply to them, as set forth below.

 

For students who are accepted to a master’s degree, on condition that they study supplementary studies concurrently with the master’s degree studies, their tuition fee will be composed of accrued tuition fees: for courses in the master’s degree, the fee rate will be according to the master’s degree rules, and for supplementary study courses, the fee rate will be according to the special status.
