With the approval of your home university, you can apply to enrol in a topic at another university and have that study credited towards your degree at your home university. This is known as cross-institutional study. If you wish to undertake this study you will need to obtain approval separately from both institutions.
Current Flinders University students seeking to study a topic at another university require approval from their relevant College before enrolling elsewhere. To apply for cross-institutional study, you need to complete the following steps:
Please note: Approval to undertake cross-institutional study does not constitute acceptance or enrolment at the other university. You will still need to formally apply to the other university, providing your approval email and Confirmation of Enrolment as evidence of Flinders’ approval. Once that University gives approval you will need to enrol in the relevant topic/s at that university.
You will gain credit for your cross-institutional study but the grade for the topic received at the other institution/university will not be recorded on your Flinders transcript and will not factor in calculating your Flinders GPA. Therefore, you must keep a record of your academic results from the other institution/university.
Are you a returning cross-institutional student seeking to study additional topics? If so please submit an Ask Flinders support request with your topic selection and home university’s approval and we will add this topic to your existing study plan.

Non-award study is the opportunity to enrol in a topic without admission to a degree or course of study. This usually suits professionals who wish to demonstrate competence in a study area or pursue personal interest. Students participate in all class requirements and complete assessment to receive a final grade; however, the topic is not counted towards a specific degree.
Payment is required upfront by the due date of the applicable semester. The payment amount is at least equal to the highest student contribution amount rate (for undergraduate topics) or the postgraduate coursework tuition fee rate (for postgraduate topics). Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) charges also apply.
Before you submit your application you need to use the university timetable to find currently available topics.

Please submit your application at least two weeks prior to the start date of the topic. Applications are accepted until the last day to enrol in topics, however approval is at the discretion of the College. If you apply late, it will be your responsibility to learn outstanding topic content and complete any due assessment.
Observing Topics means that a person attends lectures from a topic in an award course for general interest (i.e. not for the purpose of completing the requirements of the award).
Please note that observing a topic does not include online lectures or resources reserved for students such as field trips, tutorials, seminars, workshops, laboratories, computing facilities, or assessment. Signed approval from the relevant Topic Coordinator must be provided on the form below prior to submitting the application.
