About us

U3A is an international movement which began in France in the 1960s.

We provide courses and activities for older people in Stonnington and nearby suburbs, with no exams, tests or assignments. 

Unpaid lecturers, tutors and members volunteer their time and expertise, to organise and deliver absolutely everything to keep us operating. 

Two semesters

We offer a new progam in January and in July.   A Newsletter, Course List, and the Enrolment Form are published for each semester and all sessions are held at Valetta Street unless stated otherwise in the Course List.

Our address is 1-3 Valetta Street, Malvern Vic 3144 just off Glenferrie Road, opposite the tram depot.

You may drop in from 10 am to 1 pm Monday to Friday, except on public holidays.
