Changing direction of a deadbolt lock?

I'm trying to install a new lock in my new apartment and I noticed the existing lock on the bottom closes by turning to the left and my new deadbolt lock closes to the right. Is there way to change the locking direction of my new lock?

This is the new lock. Thanks!

Thanks for the link, generally no, it's not a matter of a simple "user-reversible" component. And the internal parts are usually stamped in place and do not lend themselves to easy modification.
