Course Enrolment

You can apply for enrolment in any of the available courses, talks and events in the current Program:

Online – using an easy to follow Course Application form: apply for courses, withdraw an enrolment, provide information


Enrolment-by-Email – provides quickest and simplest way to apply or withdraw from a course; you must be a member before each semester’s enrolment period to participate, and need to understand the system’s straightforward guidelines and examples


Postal – membership and course application semester 2 form: slowest and most cumbersome method; use only if you cannot access email or the online form

The online form and email systems do not require usernames or passwords but do require you to be in our membership records or to have recently submitted a new member application. They can be securely and safely completed on any computer or device and can be used interchangeably at any time during the year.

Whichever method is used, you are encouraged to carefully consider and submit your application as early as possible, even though order of receipt does not alone determine class admission. Those applications received within two weeks of the Program being published each semester will be balloted for any course that is oversubscribed. Otherwise, and after that time period, classes and wait lists are formed in order of receipt.

All applications are provisional, irrespective of how or when submitted, until class limits and lists are finalized or updated and confirmation letters distributed. It is important to keep your contact details up to date.

Note about Semester 1 applications:   A discretionary freeze in the processing of applications is applied from five days before to five days after the start of semester sessions. This reduces excessive revision and reprinting of class lists, and stabilizes classes for course leaders and course clerks.

Note about continuing (full year) courses:   Admissions in continuing courses do not require re-application for Semester 2. If a course then continues into a new year the class list initially carries over as well, however participants must re-apply before the advertised Semester 1 close of enrolments to maintain their place.
