Welcome to U3A Banyule

U3A  - the University of the Third Age - is an international movement that fosters lifelong learning for pleasure. It is a self-help body of volunteers interested in their own and community education. There are no prior qualifications or exams, and no degrees awarded; the only requirement is that you are aged 50+, retired or semi-retired.


U3A Banyule allows you to enjoy a wide range of educational courses, creative and physical activities, excursions and social events. We have over 500 members and offer approximately 120 courses and activities each year.


For example, we offer foreign language, history, Australian literature and science courses. Why not engage in the issues of the day in our Current Affairs class? Or strengthen the body and mind doing Tai Chi or yoga? Or derive the benefits from social activities like a lingering lunch, sketching and walking? As a full member of U3A Banyule, you can enjoy the experience of attending university lectures of your choice, at La Trobe University (free of charge) - for further information see Community News.


Further information about U3A Banyule can be obtained from our brochure and also from our website under Membership and Courses.   A general promotional video about U3A can also be viewed here 


U3A Banyule engages with the local community, through intergenerational projects, fundraising and monthly Public Lectures and an Annual Forum. To read more see News & Events.


We depend on members offering their services as tutors, in administration either  on the Committee or in the office and to organise social events. For further information, see Volunteering.
