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.
