Auditing Hindi

Hindi opens the door to understanding India in countless ways, whether your interests are in travel, music, culture, arts, cinema, dance or literature. What is more Hindi and Urdu are closely related sister languages so whatever you learn in first year Hindi provides a basis for speaking both Hindi and Urdu. Hindi script is also easy to learn and reading and writing are taught as an integral part of first semester s  tudy. Many students of Hindi are people who want to learn more about India or people of South Asian heritage wanting to explore in depth their cultural connections. Hindi is taught as a communicative language at ANU and classes provide ample opportunities to learn the four skills of comprehension, expression, reading and writing. There are also extensive online materials which support learning first year Hindi at ANU.

What is auditing? Auditing or "listening in" offers access to some ANU undergraduate courses (lectures only).

The Centre for Continuing Education offers access to approved ANU undergraduate courses for people who want to listen in to lectures without actually enrolling as a degree student. Auditors (listeners) do not generally require any special qualifications except for those courses where prerequisites are necessary - this can be ascertained by consulting the current ANU Undergraduate Handbook.

Audit students may not sit formal examinations. An Audit enrolment guarantees admission only to lectures. Attendance at lectures will under no circumstances be accepted as credit towards a degree program. Auditors may seek permission from the faculty to attend tutorials (subject to space being available), additional fees may apply.
