Welcome to Aberdeen u3a which provides educational, recreational and social activities for retired or semi-retired people who, after the completion of their many years of employment, or family obligations, wish to continue their life in the company of others, in Aberdeen and the Shire.

We hold monthly speaker meetings in the BB Hall, and the programme of talks is on our Events page. Aberdeen u3a also offers interest groups in a wide range of subjects. For full details of these, please see our Groups page (click on the button above).

All our activities are led by unpaid volunteers who encourage all members to participate in the groups. No qualifications are required and none are given.

For more information about membership of Aberdeen u3a, please see our Membership page.
