Audit Students

Audit students are defined as those who wish to enrol in a unit without pursuing academic credit.

Audit students:

  • may enrol in a unit designed for award students, with the permission of the relevant Lecturer, on the understanding that such units are presented at award level;
  • may enrol in a maximum of four units presented at award level;
  • must demonstrate that they satisfy any prerequisite knowledge that might be required of the unit(s) being considered for enrolment;
  • must complete an ENROLMENT FORM (PDF) and submit it to the Registrar three weeks prior to the commencement of the relevant semester (see Important Dates)
  • are required to pay a tuition fee;
  • may enrol in a unit that is delivered via on-campus weekly lectures or distance education (online);
  • will be entitled to access all handouts, readings, audio-visual material and photocopies normally distributed to award students;
  • will not be required to complete assessment tasks prescribed for award students, and do not have the privilege of assessment; and
  • may request a statement acknowledging participation in such units from the Registrar and are eligible to receive a College Certificate of Participation from St Andrew’s after satisfactory attendance of four foundational units assigned by St Andrew’s.

If English is a second language, a prospective audit student must have an International English Language Testing System (IELTS, or equivalent) score of 6.5 with no score less than 6.0 in all bands of the ‘academic format’ of the test.
