WHAT IS U3A?
The U3A is a gathering of people no longer in full time employment who like learning with and from one another. The third age follows on from the second age of employment and parental responsibility, and the first age of childhood dependence. The Third age is a time of new opportunity with freedom to pursue social, intellectual, active and practical interests, just for the fun of it!
U3A is an international network which began in France. Over 342,000 people are members of 950 U3A groups in the U.K. Over 20 groups are flourishing in Northern Ireland. All groups are linked by the U3A Trust and each U3A group is a local self-governing voluntary body. In the U3A, we organise and share educational, creative and leisure activities.
