To see courses on a particular day, click the corresponding button.
Any course that has places available has Open written beside it in green. Other courses may be full or need enrolment in person through the U3A Beachmere Office at the Hub.
Our courses are grouped in basic U3A Qld categories of knowledge/activity e.g. Exercise, Humanities (which includes history and family history) and Lifestyle (which includes music and gardening).
Clicking this button will result in a new Tab/window opening. There is a menu at the top.
The first category that you will see is Arts and Crafts. Check the buttons for your areas of interest, such as painting, crochet or quilting.
Clicking the category button will open the list of courses in that Category. If no courses appear – there are none currently offered at Beachmere in that subject area .
IMPORTANT Any course that has places available has ‘Open’ on the right hand side in green type. It may not have a check box beside it to allow you to enrol if enrolments are not yet open. For example, if enrolment day is 19th January and you try to enrol on 18th January, there will be not be a checkbox next to each course.
Other courses may have Office Only on the right hand side. This means that course may be full or you need to enrol in person.
On enrolment day the checkbox appears to denote that enrolments are enabled.
If there is no check box, check to see if you are too early to enrol, and try again from 9am on the day enrolments open.
This is the search courses screen that MyU3A displays once you enter the system to enrol.
