JCU University Courses (free for members of U3A Cairns)

Cairns U3A members are welcome to JCU (James Cook University) to attend most subjects for no fee.

Information regarding Semesters 1 and 2 are published in the Bulletin each year.

Read about how to apply.  For any queries, the JCU Liaison Officer is Kurt Wagner, email: kurtwagner.autotec@gmail.com.


  • Every subject is available but subject to pre-requisite restrictions – evidence is required of prior learnings.
  • Members are not guaranteed a place if a course is already full – preference is given to JCU students.
  • If you have never been to an Orientation at JCU, you must attend once – the meeting goes for approximately one hour.
