Academic Information

Chapman University maintains a record of the courses that previous study abroad students have taken, and the equivalent Chapman credit that was granted for each course. To view the course equivalencies for this program, click “Sample Pre-Approved Courses” at the top of each program brochure page. Please note that Sample Pre-Approved Courses are courses that have been previously requested by a Chapman student for credit. It is not a comprehensive list of all courses available at the institution.

You may view the entire course catalog for this program on the University of Melbourne course catalog. Universities in the Southern Hemisphere have different academic schedules with the first semester usually beginning in February and the second semester beginning in July. So on the left sidebar, please check off “Semester 2” for Chapman’s fall semester and “Semester 1” for Chapman’s spring semester.

Students are encouraged to request additional or revised equivalencies during the pre-departure process, which will be evaluated by the appropriate academic units on campus.
