About Membership

The membership fee the 2022 calendar year is $25 and entitles a member to enrol in up to five courses in both Semesters 1 and 2.  Members must have paid their membership subscription before they can start attending a course following enrolment.  This is to ensure members are covered by U3A’s Public Liability Insurance. Most courses have a maximum capacity and when courses are full, you will be wait-listed until a place becomes free.

Please note: U3A Online is a separate organisation offering only online courses. You can not enrol in our courses through them or vice versa.
