Flinders offers members of the community the opportunity to audit various university topics.

What is auditing a topic?

Auditing means that a person attends lectures from a topic in an award course for general interest (ie. not for the purpose of completing the requirements of the award).

Please note that auditing a topic does not include assessment, attending tutorials, laboratory classes or the use of computing facilities including Flinders Learning Online (FLO).

Can I use the Library?

If you would like to borrow books from the library you can do so for a fee of $55.00 (inc GST). This will entitle you to borrow up to 4 books at a time for a period of 2 weeks.

How do I apply?

To apply to audit a topic, complete the following steps:

  1. Download Audit Information.pdf (PDF 83KB) . This lists the topics, special conditions and associated costs.
  2. Look up the topic content, timetable information and topic coordinators on the topic information website .
  3. Download and complete the Audit Application Form.pdf (PDF 69KB) .
    Note: Some topics require the lecturer's permission for attendance at lectures. Contact details for topic coordinators can be found on the staff directory.
