Term Dates

The University of Melbourne offers IBEX opportunities in fall and spring semesters.

  • When planning for your program at UNSW, you must choose in advance how many courses (3 or 4) you want to take. This decision will dictate when you need to arrive at UNSW:
    • Spring semester:
      • Option 1: Tailored Term 1, which runs from the first week in January through mid-May. This option consists of taking one course during UNSW's January Term (JT) and three courses during Term 1 (T1). This allows students to take a total of four courses that will transfer back to NYU Stern as 16 credits.
      • Option 2: Term 1 only, which runs from mid-February through mid-May. This option consists of taking three courses that will transfer back to NYU Stern as 12 credits.
    • Fall semester:
      • Option 1: Tailored Term 3, which runs from mid-August through mid-December. This option consists of taking one course during UNSW's August Term (AT) and three courses during Term 3 (T3). This allows students to take a total of four courses that will transfer back as 16 credits.
      • Option 2: Term 3 only, which runs from mid-September through mid-December. This option consists of taking three courses that will transfer back as 12 credits.

Dates are approximate and may be subject to change.

Academic Information

If you are accepted to IBEX, you will attend two individual advising meetings to plan and revise your schedule: one with NYU Stern Academic Advising and one with the NYU Stern International Programs team. As you build your academic schedule for your semester abroad, carefully review and consider the following course information.

 

IBEX Course Information

  • You may take a full semester of business classes while abroad on IBEX.
  • Leave room for at least two general electives in your schedule. This allows you to:
    • Take interesting, location-specific courses not offered at Stern, and
    • Have more flexibility during the course registration process.
  • Reference the IBEX Course Guide: What you can or cannot take.
    • You can take a maximum of two classes per concentration.
    • Accounting courses cannot be taken for credit toward the Accounting or CPA majors/concentrations.
    • All IBEX grades will transfer back to NYU Stern as Pass/Fail.

 

Previously Approved Courses

  • Listed below are courses that were taken previously by Stern IBEX students and have already been approved for a specific NYU equivalent.
  • There is no guarantee that the courses listed here will be offered during the specific semester you study abroad. It is important to be flexible. Have a Plan A and Plan B and the space to take some electives.
  • If a course is already listed below as approved, it does not need to be reviewed again, unless you want to see if it will count towards a new requirement.

 

Finding New Courses

  • You are not limited to only taking the courses listed on this page.
  • If you see a course on UNSW’s website that you would like to take, but is not listed below, you must submit the syllabus to Stern’s International Programs team for approval.
  • Once UNSW publishes its confirmed courses for the semester you will be attending, you can revise your list as needed based on what is being offered.
  • UNSW has an academic calendar that you can explore to get a sense of future courses. To get a sense of future fall semester courses, review the August 2020 Tailored Term 3 course offerings (pick one) and the UNSW Online Course Search (pick three offered in the T3 column). To get a sense of the future spring semester courses by viewing the UNSW Tailored Terms Courses Booklet (pick one for Tailored Term 1) and the UNSW Online Course Search (pick three classes offered in the T1 column for Term 1).
