Welcome to U3A Kooyong
Since 1992 U3A Kooyong has been part of the ever-growing University of the Third Age movement in Victoria. If you are 50+ and no longer working full-time, U3A Kooyong provides an opportunity to keep your brain active and make some wonderful new friends.
From its foundation, U3A Kooyong has had a mutually beneficial relationship with Vision Australia. Classes are held within the newly renovated Vision Australia complex opposite Kooyong Tennis Club and cater for sighted as well as those with vision impairment. We are the envy of many U3A groups with tram and train services outside and plenty of off-street parking.
U3A's provide a non-competitive learning environment, with no qualifications and exams. Our voluntary tutors are of the highest calibre and we offer an interesting selection of topics presented in small groups promoting lively discussion. Members are encouraged to suggest topics and courses or a one off talk which they themselves may be willing to lead.
Classes run from the beginning of February through to the end of November each year with term breaks that follow the school year. New members can join at any time. Our annual membership fee enables members to participate in any or all classes offered.
Out Italian Conversation Class, which meets on Wednesday at 10:30 has vacancies for new members.

A message from the President of U3A Network Victoria
"I am delighted to share with you the news that the U3A Movement in Victoria has won the Age-Friendly Victoria award, for an organisation in our State that promotes active ageing. This year’s Victorian Senior of the Year Awards were presented on 9 October at a Government House ceremony hosted by the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria. We at Network were thrilled that our movement has been recognised during the Seniors Festival this month as playing such an important role in the lives of seniors."
