Universities of Third Age (U3As)
Address:

You can find your nearest U3A group by searching the U3A website or please feel free to get in touch with us for more help.


About

Learning cooperatives for people no longer in full time work - set up to give people the chance to learn and find out more about subjects that interest them in small, friendly groups. The idea is to learn for fun, not for qualifications. Not just for older people, there’s no lower age limit if you want to join and it’s fine if you’re working part-time. If caring commitments make it difficult to get out and about you can also join a U3A online.
