Other information

The course will focus each week on a place that has been inscribed on the World Heritage List or a set of World Heritage sites within a particular country. Reminiscences about visits to the sites will be welcome as well as slides taken during visits. Along the way there will be some discussion of problems both the chosen sites and the UNESCO World Heritage program are experiencing. The tutor will present some sites but class members will be invited to present on some of the sites they have visited if they so wish.

TUTOR: Alongside his work at various Melbourne universities, William (Bill) acted as a consultant to UNESCO’s Paris-based World Heritage Centre and for ICOMOS, also in Paris, from 1986 to 2022. This has involved helping countries to nominate sites for inscription, examining nominations and monitoring inscribed sites that are experiencing problems. These countries have mostly been in Asia, but he has also done heritage work in Europe, Australia and the Pacific.

From 31 Jan to 5 Sept except 25 April, 16 May

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
