U3A Bund­aberg func­tions with the phi­los­o­phy of “learn­ing for the joy of learn­ing” with the close co­op­er­a­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion of its mem­bers. There is no aca­demic re­quire­ment for mem­ber­ship of U3A, and there is no dis­tinc­tion in sta­tus be­tween tu­tors and students. Most tu­tors come from within the mem­ber­ship. They tap great reser­voirs of learn­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence amongst mem­bers who by tu­tor­ing classes, pass on their knowl­edge for the ben­e­fit of all. Our tu­tors are peo­ple who have skills, ex­pe­ri­ence and in­sights into a range of sub­jects. A tu­tor in one class is likely to be a stu­dent in an­other one. U3A Bund­aberg of­fers around 80 dif­fer­ent cour­ses each term. Some cour­ses on of­fer are:

- craft

- ex­er­cise

- sport

- mu­sic

- lan­guages

- com­put­ing In ad­di­tion to the ed­u­ca­tional as­pects, U3A pro­vides the plat­form for com­pre­hen­sive phys­i­cal and so­cial pro­grams. Ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude ex­er­cise and keep­fit classes, and con­certs. Sub­ject to avail­abil­ity mem­bers can join as many classes and ac­tiv­i­ties as they wish.
