The Raphael Recanati International School at IDC Herzliya is an “island” of opportunity for students from around the world who would like to deepen their bonds with Israel while earning internationally recognized and sought-after academic degrees. Our dedicated staff span the spectrum of services that a student living away from home would need – from academic, to social, to housing and more.  In 1994 Professor Uriel Reichman, President and Founder of IDC Herzliya, established this university based on the values of “freedom and responsibility”. His aim was to imbue in our students the inner aspiration to succeed, while never forgetting our responsibility to help, support and build up others.  The RRIS has over 2,000 students from 86 countries – a third of IDC Herzliya’s student body – meaning that we can proudly call ourselves the largest academic absorption center in the country. In fact, 37% of all international students studying full-time for their degrees in Israel study at IDC Herzliya. This gives us the highest number of international students of any academic institution in the country. According to the Council for Higher Education we are ranked number one, both per capita and in absolute numbers, out of 65 universities and colleges in Israel.  Now more than ever we are an institution that embraces Zionism, and our goal is to educate a generation of new leaders for the State of Israel, the Jewish world and the world at large. We endeavor to build bridges between economic elites and the underprivileged, between Israelis and Diaspora Jews and between Israel and her neighbors.  Today IDC Herzliya is considered a prestigious university both nationally and internationally. Our faculty and staff are leaders in their fields and professions with many having joined us from other Ivy League and world-renowned universities. These experts strongly value our ideal of “the student as our partner” and work to ensure a good combination of scholarly excellence and practical experience within their curricula. We also believe in “startup academia” and encourage our students to initiate, innovate, invent and create at every opportunity.  After graduation many of our students choose to make Israel their home, while others become superb ambassadors for the State of Israel in their overseas communities. Some of our graduates continue on to graduate programs at top universities around the world, while others work for successful global companies.  We invite you to join the IDC Herzliya family and look forward to helping you realize the vision of Theodor Herzl – “If you will it, it is not a dream”. Here’s to your “next year in Herzliya”.
