Welcome – womin je ka

Never stop learning.

It appears that there were some problems with our online enrolment system on 9th December and that some enrolment requests simply got lost. We apologise and are investigating. In the meantime, please check the current status of your 2020 Term 1 enrolments (go to www.nillumbiku3a.org.au/enrolment, choose ‘request a status report’ and enter your member number and email address). If any of your enrolments are missing, please re-enrol (go to www.nillumbiku3a.org.au/enrolment and choose ‘apply to join a class’). Alternatively, tell the Office by email or snail mail (PO Box 852 Eltham, 3095).

Membership fees for 2020 can now be paid (see the membership page).

The Office is now closed and will re-open Tuesday, 28th January 2020 (after the public holiday on Monday, 27th). Emails will be dealt with during this time and online enrolments will continue.


U3A stands for University of the Third Age – the time of active retirement from full time employment.

The term “University” is used in its original sense as a community of people sharing ideas and knowledge. There are no exams, entry levels or qualifications necessary to participate and no awards are given. All you need to bring to our classes are your life experiences. With ageing populations, the U3A movement is rapidly spreading in many parts of the world.

Victoria now has over 100 U3As in both urban and rural areas. U3As are based on a cooperative system where members are encouraged to participate through the following: joining a class, leading a course/activity, or assisting with planning and administration. All of this is done on a voluntary basis.

We aim to provide creative, educational, and recreational opportunities for mature aged people in our community. Registration is low cost and classes are held in a friendly and informal environment.

Nillumbik U3A Office open at Old Eltham Courthouse,
Mondays & Thursdays 10am-noon in term time only
