Choosing the right program

The five UT OLLI at Austin programs are different in three ways: annual membership fees, time and day classes meet, and the ratio of single lecture offerings versus six week seminars. View the table below for more details.

Lectures vs. Seminars

A lecture is a one-time event on a topic of general interest given by one or several speakers. There is typically a 15-minute question and answer period at the end of each lecture.

A seminar is a course that meets weekly for six consecutive weeks. Seminars either have a single speaker or multiple speakers that present on a theme for the entire seminar series.
