Names will be taken on a waitlist for any vacancies that occur for this group

Please enrol before attending courses (posted 9 Mar 19)

If you wish to attend courses and lectures etc, it really is important to enrol beforehand. This gives the Course Coordinator numbers, so a decision can be made to actually hold the course. For really popular courses, the decision may be made to split the class over a few days to accommodate everyone. Another requirement is to know how many lecture notes to print out. The presenter may also change the way the course is presented to cater for large or small numbers.
