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:

  1. Download Audit information (PDF 38KB) to obtain more information including associated costs.
  2. Browse our topic offerings, timetable information and obtain topic coordinator details on the topic information website.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
