The Council for Higher Education voted to allow IDC Herzliya to apply to establish a doctorate program in law. Others will follow.
This marks the first time that the council has granted permission to an academic institution that is not a university to apply to open a PhD program, paving the way for IDC Herzliya to become the first private university in Israel.
On March 26th, Mr Naftali Bennett, Minister of Education of the State of Israel visited IDC to celebrate this important milestone. The recognition by the Council for Higher Education will elevate the already established research excellence produced at IDC to higher plains, and we look forward to a bright future.
