Other information

We go back 75,000 years to understand human movements across the planet. We look at the history of the Indigenous Australians, their cultures, beliefs, technologies, land management and dispute settlement systems.

We then look at the varying (but similar) processes for British colonisation of the continent and the contribution of ordinary white people to this process. The unreconciled contradictions between the two cultural systems will be placed in the context of British and world ‘development’.

We will explore how the continuing, but generally unrecognised, discrimination plays a continuing role and is explained by our unbroken adherence to an internally contradictory social and economic system.

TUTOR:  Claude is a seasoned presenter at other U3As. With a higher degree from Berlin in economics and psychology, he has applied knowledge of processes for inclusivity in a variety of work settings. His interest in Indigenous affairs goes back beyond his arrest at the first Tent Embassy in 1972.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

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.
