With an annual membership fee of $160, Seniors College of PEI welcomes those 50 years of age and over to enroll in as many courses as they wish during the fall (October/November), winter (January/February) and spring (April/May) semesters.
Most courses are offered during the day, and some are now being offered in the evenings. The instructors or facilitators are often seniors who have either retired from the fields covered by the courses or have a long-term personal or professional interest in their subject.
There are no pre-requisites or academic requirements, no homework, no term papers or tests. The emphasis is on personal growth in a casual, friendly atmosphere that encourages social interaction and peer-to-peer learning.
More than 100 courses are offered, including topics such as computers, drawing, painting, literature, creative writing, music, religion, cooking, astronomy, languages, local history, and many more. Members are also offered free wellness sessions, reduced membership rates at the UPEI Sports Centre, and many other benefits.
