Other information

Pre-covid, sisters Sue and Christine travelled twice to Bhutan, including to the east of the country, a region beyond the regular tourist route and therefore visited by only a small number of overseas visitors each year. Bhutan is a country of breathtaking (literally) beauty. A carbon-negative country whose people entwine their cultural and spiritual beliefs in all aspects of their lives.

Expect photos of majestic mountains, deep valleys, colourful festivals, magnificent dzongs (you’ll need to come to find out what they are) and maybe a yak or two. Bhutanese textiles and other artifacts will be on display.

TUTORS: Sue and Christine have travelled extensively since their retirement. Christine has special interest in Eastern philosophy and yoga practice. Sue is an active member of both Hawthorn and Deepdene U3A. In their spare time they both enjoy singing in a choir.

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.

Via the Office: after bookings have opened
