Should I have my own computer?

  • You must have your own computer, tablet or Smartphone before you take a class so you can practise your new skills regularly.
  • In classes you can use SeniorNet PCs or Macs but we do not have tablets and Smartphones for students.

How do I know what classes are available?

  • The Course Timetable (click here for a direct link) gives the start and finish date of Courses which are planned for the next few weeks.
  • It gives the times, the number of sessions and the cost.
  • Sessions are 2 hours, and courses of more than one session are held on the same day on consecutive weeks where possible.

How do I know what each course involves?

  • To read the contents of a course before you enrol Click here for a list of Courses A-Z, then click the name of the course you are interested in,
  • OR click the title of the course you are interested in on the Timetable.
  • This will avoid your joining a course which is not suited to your skills or your operating system.

What do I do if the TimeTable says the course is full?

  • If the course is full click the following link to send an email to SeniorNet - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 
  • Name the course you are interested in and your name will be added to a waiting list.
  • When there are enough members wanting the same course, and when a tutor can be found, the course will be added to the Timetable, so keep checking.

Are there any prerequisites to my taking a course?

  • You will need the appropriate program or app which will be used in the course already on your computer or other device.
  • Find someone to help you if you are not sure about this, or visit one of our Drop-in Sessions 
  • Any other prerequisites needed are mentioned in the Course Details
