With the support 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.
Current Flinders University domestic students
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:
- Find a topic at another institution that you would like to study and identify how it fits into your degree plan. For example, are you seeking to complete the topic in place of an elective, or towards a major?
- Copy the link of the topic information page from the other institution’s website and submit it in an Ask Flinders support request. Please allow a minimum of two weeks for your application to be assessed.
- If approved, your cross-institutional enrolment will appear on your Confirmation of Enrolment.
- Upon completion of the topic, you must provide your College with an academic transcript to be granted credit.
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’ support. Ensure that you enrol in the relevant topic/s at the other university.
You can apply to study cross-institutionally at Flinders University through our online application process.
Before you submit your application, you will need to have:
- Identified the topic(s) you wish to study by searching the Flinders topics page.
- Obtained your home university’s approval.
- A transcript from your home university (an unofficial transcript is acceptable).
- Your SACE documentation, if applicable.
- Confirmation of your Commonwealth supported place, if applicable.
Enrolment at Flinders is completed online, through the Student System. If your application is approved, you will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to access your Flinders account and enrol. See the enrolling in & withdrawing from topics and class registration webpages for further information.
If you have undertaken cross-institutional study with us before, you do not need to submit a new application. Please submit an Ask Flinders support request with your topic selection and home university’s approval.
International students who apply must also attach a copy of the following to their application:
- Visa details
- Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE)
By applying, you acknowledge that Flinders University reserves the right to confirm your eligibility to study through the Department of Home Affairs’ Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) system.
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.
- Use the university timetable to find currently available topics
- Submit the completed non-award enrolment form via Ask Flinders and attach any relevant supporting documentation.
If your application is approved, you will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to access your Flinders account and enrol. See enrolling in & withdrawing from topics and class registration for further information.
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.
Auditing allows you to attend lectures for a topic for personal interest. Topics without a lecture component stated on the topic information webpage cannot be audited. Auditing students are not permitted to attend other types of class activities such as workshops, tutorials, seminars, practicals, laboratory classes, placements or field trips. Auditing does not provide a participation certificate and cannot be counted as credit towards a topic in an award course at the University.
For further information, fee charges and instructions on how to apply, please see the auditing a topic page.
