What is included in the Membership?
Once you have purchased your membership you can go to as many AUDS classes as you want. Please have a look at our timetable to see all of the classes available!
Can I just pay separately for each class?
Unfortunately we do not currently offer a pay by class system. In order to attend classes a membership must be purchased.
Can I try out a class before purchasing a membership?
The first two weeks of each semester are free and you are welcome to attend as many classes as you would like!
Can I start coming to class once the semester has already started?
You are welcome to start coming to classes at any point in the semester once you have purchased your membership. Please be aware that in second semester many of our classes will be working on their pieces for the showcases. You will still be welcome to class but if you miss the deadline you will not be able to participate in the showcase.
Where do I get the latest updates about my classes?
The best way to get information about the classes is to go to their facebook group. Each tutor runs a facebook group where they post updates, essential information, and possible class changes. The groups are private but once you ask to be part of the group you will be added. You can find the groups Here.
