Please take into consideration that:


A.         Some programs/departments have different calendars. Thus, students may need to arrive earlier or leave later (depending on the courses that they take). It is the students' responsibility to check the dates of the courses they are registered for before arrival and arrange their stay accordingly.

B.         The general university calendar does not include the exam period. Please plan on staying an additional 3 weeks at the end of the semester to complete all academic assignments (in-class exams and any other assignments that require your physical presence/attendance at TAU).
