Moray Coast



The Moray Coast U3A is the local branch of the University of the Third Age(U3A) for retired/semi-retired people living in the coastal area between Banff and Elgin. Formed in November 2011 the Moray Coast U3A now has several active interest groups meeting on a regular basis. Our membership is increasing steadily and we hope to add more Interest Groups as our membership grows. Go to Groups page to learn more.

The Third Age Trust is the national representative body for the Universities of Third Age in the UK. U3As are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun. Many of our members make new, like minded, friends as in addition to learning.
