How to Enrol

Browse the selection we have on offer by going to our Courses or Events pages. Alternatively you can use the search button (magnifying glass icon) to search for a course by the course title, keyword or the tutor's name.

Once you are on the page listing the courses you can use the subheadings on the left-hand side (if using a computer), or press on the red Filter bar (if on tablet or mobile) to press on a specific subject area in which you are interested. We have also included filters underneath the subheadings to narrow down the course listings by delivery mode and daytime, evening or weekend.

If there are no available classes for the course in which you are interested you can join the waiting list and we will notify you when a class is made available.

Anyone 18 years old and older 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. If you are enrolling from outside of Australia, please email us first so we can manually add your address to the system before you enrol on the website.

Please ensure you enrol into your chosen course at least 7 days prior to its commencement.

Proceeding to Checkout

Once you find the course into which you want to enrol, press the Enrol Now button. If you are only enrolling into one course press Proceed to Checkout to go the Your Details page. If you are enrolling into more than one course you can continue to search and add a course to your enrolment and then press Proceed to Checkout when you have finished selecting the last course.

If you have accidentally selected the wrong course, press on the shopping cart icon and press on the red X checkbox to remove it. You can also use the shopping cart to proceed through to the checkout by pressing Enrol.

The Your Details page will ask you to provide your first name, last name and email to look up your account in our enrolment system. If you have previously enrolled on the website, we ask that you use the same details as the last time you enrolled so our enrolment system does not create a new person for you.

If you have not enrolled with us before, you will be asked to fill in other details to finish creating your account. Once this have been filled out, press OK to proceed to the Summary page. If you need to add another person to your enrolment, you can do this from the Summary page by pressing Add another student.

Adding Concessions & Discounts

From the Summary page, you can add any concessions and discounts that are available by pressing Add Concession. Select the relevant concession type for which you are eligible from the drop-down menu, add the concession number and then press Save Concession for it to apply. If you have added a concession previously, this should automatically be showing underneath your student name.

Discount codes (where applicable) need to be added each time you enrol by typing in the case-sensitive code and then pressing the red Add Code button for it to apply. For the full list of available concessions and discounts on offer to students as well as further information, please visit our Concessions & Discounts page.

If a course has multiple classes, you can choose your preferred option by pressing the down arrow. You can also untick specific classes if you no longer want to enrol into a class, and you may do this for any additional persons added to your enrolment. Once you have finalised your enrolment, check that the Pay Now amount is correct and then press Proceed to Payment.

Proceeding to Payment

WEA Sydney accepts all major credit cards (Amex/MasterCard/Visa), and gift vouchers issued by WEA Sydney can also be used for partial or full payment. If you have a voucher code, type in the case-sensitive code on the Payment page and press Add Code for it to apply. If you would like to purchase a gift voucher, please click here.

You will then need to tick the "I agree to the enrolment sale and refund policy" checkbox in order to insert your credit card details.

What happens after I have paid?

An enrolment confirmation, payment receipt and invoice will be sent to your email address. You will also receive a Course Commencement notice emailed to you at 7:00pm the night before the class starts with additional information. 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 this by sending us an email.
