Additional information for international students

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

International students on a student visa are required to be enrolled in a full-time study load, usually four (4) topics, (or 18 units) per semester.

International students on a student visa can only undertake 33% of their total enrolment load at Flinders as online topics and must not enrol exclusively in online topics in any compulsory study period (i.e. standard semester).

Please ensure you select topics in accordance with these requirements. The University reserves the right to amend your enrolment to ensure compliance with the ESOS Act and National Code.

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:
