Advice regarding enrolment for 2019

The 2019 Curriculum is now available. Links to the curriculum and to Summer School have now been emailed to everyone whose email address is in the Membership System. There are also paper copies available for collection in the Office.

Enrolments for 2019 will open at 10am on 19 November. Membership fees for 2019 will then become due. You can enrol online or attend the office for assisted enrolment by one of our volunteers from that date.

For prospective new members

We are drawing towards the end of classes for 2018. Few classes will be accepting new enrolments for this year.

It is recommended that you don't pay a 2018 subscription at this time as there is no 'pro-rata' subscription amount.

You might like to register as a new member [click on the link provided above] and provide your details to the membership system. Once the online 2019 Curriculum is published, you will receive a link to it, with a reminder to pay your membership and to commence enrolling from 19 November.

Most courses and activities will be open on a 'first come, first enrolled' basis from that date.

A message from the President of U3A Network Victoria

"I am delighted to share with you the news that the U3A Movement in Victoria has won the Age-Friendly Victoria award, for an organisation in our State that promotes active ageing. This year’s Victorian Senior of the Year Awards were presented on 9 October at a Government House ceremony hosted by the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria. We at Network were thrilled that our movement has been recognised during the Seniors Festival this month as playing such an important role in the lives of seniors."
