Online Across Scotland


Welcome to u3a: Online Across Scotland.

This network was set up to enable u3a members from across Scotland to take part in interest groups and courses offered online by fellow u3a members. We were launched during lockdown when local u3as could not meet. Our groups remain active and our talks prove popular, complementing activities offers through individual u3as.

Thanks to this new network a member of a u3a based in the Highlands can join a group run by a member of a u3a based in the Central Belt (and vice versa) and learn alongside u3a members from u3as throughout Scotland.

We want to grow and bring more u3a members from across Scotland together. To support this we would like to offer a wider range of groups which means we need more group leaders.

If you would like to help - either running a new group on an existing topic or running one on a new topic then please get in touch with the Groups Coordinator. There is a strong demand for FRENCH CONVERSATION, GERMAN CONVERSATION, SPANISH and GAELIC but more groups leaders are needed to set these up. We have recently received a request for GEOLOGY group.

We will of course help you to get your group up and running.

Please click on Setting up a New Group to find out more about what is involved.

Our news pages features a different group every few week.

We also host regular on-line talks - please check our Events page for details.
