Offshore student information

The following information is relevant to international students studying offshore. If you have any questions about any of the below, or anything else to do with your Flinders experience, please submit an AskFlinders request, or contact us via Jabber Guest (details below).

Enrolment load

A full-time study load is usually four (4) topics, (or 18 units) per semester. If you cannot enrol in a full-time load due to some of your topics not being available online or prefer to enrol in fewer topics, please let us know by submitting an AskFlinders request. If you intend to come to Australia to complete your degree, please keep in mind that all international students who are studying onshore (in Adelaide/ Australia) need to undertake a full-time study load each semester to meet your student visa requirement. If you are unsure about how many topics to enrol in, contact International Student Services via AskFlinders.

More information about enrolling in topics.

Topic Selection

If you need guidance about which topics to enrol in, please refer to Handbook, which contains important information about courses and topics available at Flinders, including the program of study and a study planner. If you need further enrolment advice, please contact your College:
