All courses, syllabi, dates and times below are subject to cancellation or change.
Finalized syllabi will be posted in the coming months for some of the courses below. If you wish to check previous syllabi, you can check them under Fall 2022.

All students are responsible for carefully reading the TAU Academic Handbook which contains detailed academic information regarding courses, registration, TAU academic policies, important academic deadlines, Moodle and much more.
TAU International Study Abroad students must enroll in a minimum of 4 courses listed below during each semester. If students have a home university requirement of more than this, students must adhere to their home university requirement. Please note that all courses below are worth 3 semester credits unless otherwise noted. TAU does not permit, under any circumstances, taking any in-class (including mid or final) exams at any other time than the scheduled exam day. When selecting courses, it is crucial to read the syllabus and check if there is an in-class midterm or final exam as this date/exam cannot be changed. Early departures from the program are not approved, nor are early or exception in-class exams.
Please also note that many times classes in Israel are written “to the nearest hour”, meaning you may see a course that meets from 10:15-11:45 written as 10:00-12:00. In this case, the course starts at 10:15, and ends at 11:45. Below we have written the actual course times.
For any questions regarding academic policies, procedures, syllabi or any other academic matter please email our TAU International Academic Team
