Flinders offers members of the community the opportunity to audit various university topics.
What is auditing a topic?
Auditing means that a person can attend lectures for a topic offered as part of a course for general interest (ie. not for the purpose of completing the requirements of the course). An auditing fee applies.
Please note that auditing a topic does not allow you to submit assessments, attend tutorials, attend laboratory classes or use computing facilities including Flinders Learning Online (FLO).
Can I use the Library?
If you would like to borrow books from the library while auditing a topic you can do so for an additional fee of $55.00 (inc GST).
How do I apply?
To apply to audit a topic, complete the following steps:
- Download Audit information (PDF 38KB) to obtain more information including associated costs.
- Browse our topic offerings, timetable information and obtain topic coordinator details on the topic information website.
- Download and complete the
Audit application form (PDF 108KB)
Note: All eligible topics for auditing require the topic coordinator's approval. Find topic coordinator contact details on the staff directory.
- Return the completed form to Flinders Connect.
Not all topics can be audited. Topics that are delivered as seminars, workshops, via distance education, online, involve a field trip/research work/professional experience placement component or do not have lectures are not available for auditing.
Auditing a topic does not allow access to Flinders Learning Online (FLO), submitting assessment, attending tutorials, attending laboratory classes or the use of university computing facilities.
Auditing does not award a participation certificate and is not eligible for credit towards a topic in a course at the University.
