Welcome to Coffs Harbour U3A. U3A is a world-wide organisation, which began after the Second World War to help older people whose education was cut short by the hostilities. It was to be learning through fun, with courses that required no entrance qualifications, homework or exams. The spirit still continues in the 21st century.
Coffs Harbour U3A was established in 1992. It is a voluntary organisation, which aims to provide a low cost learning experience for mature-aged people. We provide a wide range of courses covering many subjects, including art, current affairs, history, languages, literature, photography, philosophy and others. The course facilitators are all volunteers. Some people use their trade, business or professional expertise; others are happy to share a life-long hobby or interest with like-minded people.
Classes are held in venues throughout the city and at Woolgoolga, 25 kms north. The Coffs Harbour Community Village and the Woolgoolga Public Library are the most popular class meeting places.
We invite you to join us to ensure another successful year as we increase our knowledge, whilst enjoying the idyllic beaches and beautiful hinterland of the Coffs Coast.
2021 Courses are now available online.
The renewal membership fee (applicable to current and most former members) for 2021 is $40 per person. For new members the fee is $75.
That fee must be paid prior to enrolling in any course. The fee is payable online, using PayPal, MasterCard or Visa, or by cheque mailed to the Treasurer (include your name & membership number), PO Box 1596, Coffs Harbour. 2450
