Membership Information

Membership of U3A Online is available to both Individuals and Organisations with the following conditions applying:

Individual Membership

If you wish to undertake a course with U3A Online, as an Individual person, you need to first become a member of U3A Online.
This costs $30AUS/yr from the date you join and once a member you are able to enrol in as many courses as you wish, as Independent study, without further cost, throughout your membership period. If you want to do a course with a Course Leader (when they are available) then you need to pay an additional $5AUS for that course.

You can also participate in the social forums in the Members’ Lounge and other member based online activities.
Membership of U3A Online gives you an automatic subscription to GEMs. You are able to unsubscribe from this any time after you receive the first issue.

Organisation Membership

If your U3A/Organisation wishes to use the U3A Online course notes as the basis for face to face classes then the U3A/Organisation needs to join as an Organisation Member ($15AUS/yr).

This then entitles them to purchase site licences ($20AUS/course) for any courses they want to run within their U3A/Organisation. This will allow the U3A/Organisation to enrol in the course/s they have the licence for and download the course notes. These can then be printed and as many copies made as are needed for the face to face class. More than one class can be run with the same notes throughout the membership period.

As an alternative to the notes being printed for everyone the U3A/Organisation can allow its members to have access to the course via the U3A/Organisation log in information but this will only apply to the courses that the U3A/Organisation has a site licence to.

This effectively means that for the small cost of $20AUS the course can be shared among as many of your U3A/Organisation Members as you wish, as a course within the U3A/Organisation.
