How to Enrol

Browse the selection we have on offer by going to our Courses or Events pages. Anyone 18 years old and above can enrol into our courses, there are no special qualifications or knowledge required for any course unless specified in the course description and there are no exams.

Please ensure you enrol into your chosen course at least 7 days prior to it starting.

How do I pay?

WEA Sydney accepts all major credit cards (Amex/MasterCard/Visa), as well as cash. Cash enrolments can only be processed on the first floor reception. If you are enrolling by phone, please make sure you have your credit card & concession card details ready.

Are there discounts?

Course discounts where applicable are listed in our course catalogue and on the website. Concessions are available to the following;

  • Aged pensioners
  • Members of Affiliated Organisations:
    • Retired Teachers Association (NSW Branch)
    • Shop, Distributive and Allied Employees Association (NSW Branch)
    • Sydney Mechanical School of Arts
    • The Independent Education Union
    • The NSW Teachers Federation
    • Transport Workers Union of NSW
  • Seniors card holders
  • Social security beneficiaries:
    • Full-time students
    • Jobseekers
    • People with disability
    • Sole parents
    • Veterans

Concession fees and special offers or discounts are calculated from the full fee of the course or event you are enrolling into. If you are eligible for a concession fee, you cannot combine a special offer or discount on top of your concession rate.

You can add a concession when you enrol on the Checkout page. Once this has been added in, the next time you enrol it will automatically apply the discounted rate for any future courses with concessions. If you enrol into a course via the website without claiming your concession or any other offered discounts (if applicable), you will not be able to claim a reimbursement or concession for the enrolled classes.

Applications for reduction of fees on the grounds of hardship will be considered. These need to be made in person to the Executive Director and will be treated in the strictest confidence.

What happens after I have paid?

An enrolment confirmation, payment receipt and invoice will be sent to you via email when you enrol with a follow-up email sent to you 48 hours prior to your class starting reminding you of your class. Some classes may require you to purchase a textbook or art materials or may not be held at WEA Sydney so please check your course for details. If there is a change to your class, WEA Sydney will notify you by phone/email so please ensure your contact details are up-to-date with us - you can do by sending us an email.

Am I able to obtain a refund?

Yes, provided that it meets our criteria for a refund. These details can be found in our Terms & Conditions, which also has information on your rights and responsibilities as a student of WEA Sydney.
