Full-time students and Seniors Card holders - 10% off
The WEA offers a discount fee on most of its courses to full-time students and people who have or are eligible for a Seniors Card. The discount fee (disc.) is different to the concession fee (conc.). The concession fee is available only to those who have been means-tested by the federal government.
To obtain the discount fee, evidence is required. Please send or fax a photocopy of your Student Card or Seniors Card with your enrolment, or enrol in person, with your card, at the WEA Centre, 223 Angas Street, Adelaide, during office hours 9am - 5pm weekdays.

A concession fee of up to 35% is available on most WEA courses for pensioners, unemployed people, supporting parents and any other adult who possesses a Health Benefits or Health Care Card or receives Austudy or Abstudy. Concession fees are not available on some courses.
