U3A’s ARE RUN BY VOLUNTEERS
U3As are voluntary Seniors Groups that provide educational, recreational and social programs. University is used in its original sense; that is, a community of learners sharing knowledge with one another.
Each U3A is organised by and for people who can best be described as being active in retirement or semi-retirement, the third age of our lives.
If you are retired or semi-retired and want to become more active, make new friends and expand your skills and learning opportunities. U3A is a community of people sharing their knowledge and skills and.provide educational, recreational and social programs. We are a community of learners sharing knowledge with one another.
We have over 650 members, more than 80 courses and over 60 tutors. Members enjoy a wide range of classes, social activities and the opportunity to make new friends in a relaxed and stimulating environment.
U3A programs offer non-competitive learning without qualifications or exams. We enable members to explore new fields, ideas and activities.
All classes and activities are led by volunteer members and all administration is done by volunteers. Costs are kept low to ensure that U3A is accessible to all.
