Spring Semester 2021- Study Abroad Courses

 

Please note that this is a tentative list of courses for Spring Semester 2021. All courses, syllabi, dates and times below are subject to change. The syllabi posted below are examples of syllabi from Spring 2020; Spring 2021 syllabi will be finalized and posted here shortly. Classroom locations will be posted here closer to course start dates. For a schedule of Spring 2021 important dates, including courses start and end dates, please visit our Study Abroad Calendar. 

 

All students are responsible for carefully reading the TAU Academic Handbook. There students will find 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 thus very important 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.

  

For any questions regarding academic policies, procedures, syllabi or any other academic matters please email our TAU International Academic Team at tauiacademic@tauex.tau.ac.il.

Spring Semester 2021 - Courses in BA Liberal Arts Program that Run According to the Study Abroad Semester Dates

Study Abroad students may take the below 3 credit courses which are part of the BA Program in Liberal Arts (taught in English). It is possible to end these courses at the same date of the study abroad courses listed above (May 13, 2021) and so they can approximately follow our Study Abroad Calendar. More information on the class locations, exact dates, and syllabi for each BA course is provided on the BA Liberal Arts web site. Not that other than the below BA courses, it is not guaranteed for study abroad students to be able to enroll in BA courses.

 

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 will write the course times as they actually are which is why it may look different than what you see on the BA web site.

STEM Courses in English in the B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering Program

It may be possible for study abroad students who meet all required course pre-requisites to enroll in one or more STEM courses which are part of the B.Sc. program taught in English. However, these courses do not run on the same calendar as the study abroad program. They run on the regular Israeli university calendar, which means students taking these courses would be required to stay for a longer period of time than the usual study abroad program and extra housing fees would apply (typically the B.Sc. spring semester can run through August as opposed to mid-May when the Study Abroad semester ends). The B.Sc. calendar can be found here. In addition, international students should be advised as to the high degree of difficulty of these courses. In addition to meeting the course pre-requisites, students must be formally reviewed and accepted to the course by the B.Sc. program staff.  If interested in exploring the option to take a STEM course, please contact us.

 

TAU International Study Abroad students taking BA and BSC courses are subject to the academic rules, regulations and policies of these programs respectively, and students should be aware that these can differ from the TAU International Study Abroad academic rules, regulations and policies. It is the student responsibility to check with the coordinators and/or faculty of these programs regarding obtaining more information on the specific regulations as outlined by each program (including the drop/add deadlines and policies for BA and BSC courses which can vary from the TAU International Study Abroad dates and policies).
