Groups

Interest Groups are the lifeblood of the U3A organisation. Typical groups can include Art, Classical Studies, Conversation, Computers, Crafts, Debate, Drama, History, Languages, Literature, Music, Sciences, Social Sciences, and Philosophy. Most study groups do not have a prepared syllabus, but draw on reports of current affairs in their topic subject to prompt conversation and research. Some groups are designed to cross disciplinary boundaries, for example, combining Society, Technology and Science in a fashion not practical in more formal academic environments.

U3A groups are well positioned to conduct serious research into local history and genealogy. For example, a group in Eyemouth collected and exhibited many photographs of life and work in the district over the years. Some groups aim to bridge the generation gap in the field of information technology, opening up an exciting new world to many who might have been oblivious of it otherwise.

There are also many less educationally focused activities, including Games, including bridge tuition and duplicate bridge playing groups; Health, Fitness & Leisure, including countryside walks, Theatre/Concert Clubs, Travel Clubs, and Dance in all its forms. The opportunities are virtually limitless.

Kinross-shire U3A is still fairly young, and we continue to encourage people to start up interest groups. We have several currently operating, but if you can't find the one you want, please get in touch and we can help you start it!

As groups are run by and for members, it is possible that groups may choose to vary the time and place of their meetings. The days given below are subject to change!
