Course Information

The U3A official year is from February to early December each year.

We offer a wide range of courses, including the following three types.

  • Full Year with no official holidays (breaks are up to Course Leaders and class members).
  • Short course for a set duration.
  • Special Events on a specific date

Any new Short Courses and Special events will be advertised to all members as they become known.

Members are asked to enrol in their choice of courses in late January/early February. Late enrolment may occur anytime during the course, subject to available places. Contact the Course Leader to check availability.

Members pay a $2 venue fee each session for most courses. This fee can be paid in cash or by using a prepaid Piggy Card, available for purchase at the U3A Office.


Are you interested in being a Course Leader?

A big shout out to our course leaders who are the backbone of our organisation. They give their time and knowledge freely to make U3A what it is.

You do not necessarily have to be an expert in your field or activity! If you have an interest - an interest that you think others might share - then consider convening your own group by contacting us to discuss your ideas or proposals.

We can help with any questions or queries as well as the practicalities of getting your group established.

Members of our Program Group are available to discuss course proposals and provide information about all aspects of running a course with U3APS.

We also organise course promotion in our website and newsletter, schedule classes, book venues and arrange Course Leader support meetings.

If you have a course you would like to present please fill in the Course Proposal Form

If you are undecided and would like to discuss a possible course, let us know.
