Who are we?
Canterbury & District u3a is a lively and growing organisation with over 1200 members living locally. If you would like to join us please go to the Join Us page to see the various ways in which you can do so. For those who would like to discuss aspects of joining before committing themselves please feel free to contact the Membership Secretary.

About the u3a
We are one of 1000 u3a groups in the UK. u3a stands for the University of the Third Age, but it is not a university in the academic sense; no qualifications are involved. Members are retired or semi-retired people who meet together to learn new things just for the fun of it. Our 2019-2020 programme had over 100 courses in members' homes and venues throughout the district. In these difficult times we are still offering courses. See our Courses page.

More about us
We are currently sending our monthly Bulletins to members. Here is our 2021 10 (Oct) Bulletin and more are on our Publications page.
We strongly encourage all who join to actively assist us in achieving the above objectives by giving courses, helping with the administration, hosting courses etc. To learn more please click on the link How I can Help.
Send us your questions and suggestions by emailing our Business Secretary. We would love to hear what you have enjoyed or how we can improve. We will get back to you.
