What is the U3A?

  The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!

Many people ask how it has what, to the British, is quite a peculiar name.  

In the UK the local groups are not linked to universities as they were originally in France where the organistion originated. In addition Third Age has little meaning although it has a real meaning to the French to define social groups. However, if we can get over this hurdle we have access to a flourishing social and learning organisation open to all.

 

Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them.

 

It's never too late to learn! Join the 361,078 members in 1000 U3As throughout the UK today
