How to become a U3A Sunbury Member

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of U3A Sunbury.  U3A Sunbury is a welcoming educational, recreational and social organisation for retired and semi-retired people in the Sunbury community and surrounds. The aim of U3A Sunbury, a large group made up of volunteers, is to promote wellbeing and have fun while learning or enjoying social activities. You are welcome to explore and attend any of our courses or activities for 3 weeks before officially becoming a member.

Our current activities include games, languages, dancing, outings, movies, current affairs, guest speakers, philosophy and more!  We are always adding new courses and welcome members to become new group leaders.

Our courses and activities are held at various venues in Sunbury including:

  • Building 27, Jacksons Hill, Sunbury
  • Sunbury Football Club, Riddell Road, Sunbury
  • Senior Citizens Hall, 8 O’Shanassy Street, Sunbury
  • Rainbow Court, Timmins Street, Sunbury

If you would like to join U3A Sunbury after seeing what we have to offer, you can join online on this website by clicking on New Member Join. This will set up your own member page and secure password. You can then select the courses or activities you would like to enrol in. An invoice will then be generated for your membership fee which can be paid by EFT – see Bank details below, or you can pay cash to any group leader or committee member. Alternatively, you can also print out and complete the Membership Application form manually (see below). Paper forms and fees can then be given to any U3A Sunbury activity group leader or committee member. An official membership name tag will be issued to you.

As a member of U3A Sunbury you are entitled to enrol in courses throughout the year. Your membership fee covers the cost of courses. Small extra charges for materials sometimes apply.

We hope you enjoy U3A Sunbury and meeting our wonderful group of members. We look forward to seeing you in some of our courses and activities.

Before Enrolling

Some of our courses have prerequisites that you need to check before enrolling. For example, before enrolling in our French Intermediate course, you would need to be proficient at our French Beginners level.                         

Also, many of our courses are very popular and some become full. To check if a course has prerequisites or available spaces, just go to the Courses page, click on Calendar or List View, then click on the course you are interested in. Details will appear about the course, including prerequisites and availability. If you like, you can still enrol in courses that are full and be added to a Wait List. Members who are on a Wait List will be contacted by our Course Coordinator if a space becomes available.

Before becoming a Sunbury U3A member, you are most welcome to come along to our Guest Speakers where one of our Committee Members will be happy to help you with any questions you may have. Our Guest Speakers are held every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Thursday morning of the month from 10:00 to 11:45 at the Sunbury Football Social Club.

Re–enrolments for 2020

To re-enrol online, go to your Member login (login here), select your courses, then confirm your selections. You can add more courses and outings to your selections anytime throughout the year. Once you confirm your initial selections, an invoice will be generated for your annual membership fee. You can pay your membership fee by cash to any Committee member, or by EFT (bank details below).  Should you need help, any of the committee members can assist you. Your new name tag will be distributed to you through your classes or activities.

Details of the 2020 activities appear on the Courses page of our website; just scroll down to the timetable calendar or list view for summaries and details of the courses.
