Placement Tests

Placement Tests

Once admitted, students may be required to take placement exams in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Those accepted to Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Medicine are exempt from these examinations.

The entrance tests are the same as the placement tests in terms of the material needed for these testes and their dates. Registration for all tests is through the website of the Pre-University Education Center.

It is highly recommended to study in the Pre-University Education Center.  The center offers courses for those who need to prepare for the entrance tests and for the studies at the Technion. A year-long program offers intensive basic knowledge courses in Hebrew, Mathematics, Physics and English. A special program caters to new immigrants and newcomers to Israel.
