Course Code: U1826
Best suited for those who have taken the International Relations course before, however that is not a prerequisite. These sessions are background briefings to current issues internationally. This course will examine issues of international concern on a weekly basis. Topics to be covered can be tailored to suit the wishes and interests of the group where possible. However the course may include some or all of the following: Geopolitics, demography and the worlds future, the origins of the English language, the
defence of Australia, the cold world in history, the middle ages—a social history, the future of the west, apocalyptic movements in history, politics and society in the US and so on. The class format will be based on a background accompanied by a power-point presentation which will be made available to class members by the U3A website. Informal and chatty, with lots of class input.

As of January 2018 this course is full with a long waiting list, so will run for Semester 1 and likely be repeated for Semester 2.
From week beginning 19 Feb 2018 the class moves from Room 9 to the Auditorium due to increased number of members and allows those on the waiting list to attend.
Update 4 June 2018: This course will continue in Term 3 but will not be offered in Term 4.
