Program Description:

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 by following these steps:
  1. Go to the University of Newcastle course catalog
  2. 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.
  3. Check off the correct campus on the left sidebar: You may search for courses both at the Callaghan (main) campus as well as the Newcastle City Precinct campus. There is a university shuttle that runs from the main Callaghan campus to the Newcastle City Precinct campus every 30 minutes, making courses accessible between both campuses. The courses offered at the Newcastle City Precinct campus are generally Law and Business subjects.

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.
