International Applicant Instructions

 ***The MPH program is now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 academic year***


1. Applications are processed on a rolling admissions basis; we review and accept applications as soon as the complete application file is received. To secure a spot in the program, we encourage students to apply as early as possible. Applying early will also ensure better chances of obtaining financial aid and dormitory reservation in case they are relevant. Classes start November 2024.


2. Please submit your application through our online application systemWe do not accept paper-based applications. If you have any questions or are having trouble with the electronic application please send an email with the description of the problem to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or send a Whatsapp message to 972-54-4505697 .


3. You need to supply transcripts and diplomas from all degrees you hold. All transcripts and diplomas can be sent by email so the application process moves faster. BUT – your official transcripts MUST be provided before the beginning of the academic semester at the latest (whether sent via post, or provided upon arrival). Your official diploma is ONLY necessary if the official transcript you provide does not have a "Degree Conferred Date", or does not list the Degree Awarded and which date it was awarded on. If your official transcript does provide this information, a scanned and emailed copy of your diploma is sufficient. Whenever possible, we recommend that you provide your original documents via mail as soon as possible rather than waiting to provide your documents in person. If you have completed your Undergraduate Degree, please submit your final transcript with your final GPA. If you are still completing your Undergraduate Degree, please send your most updated transcript until you obtain your final transcript. 


5. If you have not asked your recommenders to fill out the online recommendation form, please ask your recommenders to complete this form here or to compose a letter as a PDF. You may mail the recommendation letter to the address listed below or you may send it via email (either by the applicant or by the recommender) to This email address is being protected from spambots.
