About us

What is U3A? (The University of The Third Age), is a voluntary organisation which encourages life-long learning in an informal and social setting. Joining U3a is the ideal way to meet new people, make new friends and start a whole new learning and social life in retirement.

Each U3A is an independent charity and reflects the interests and requirements of its membership and consequently differ in the way they are run and in the different activities that they offer.

There is no lower or upper age limit; No qualifications are required and none are given. We encourage our members to share their experiences, knowledge, skills, values and ideas.

U3a is an organisation where members are able to meet on a regular basis and socialise together.

If you are interested in becoming a member and have skills and knowledge you would be happy to share, please come along to one of our meetings and we would be happy to meet you and hopefully you would join on the day.

“Learn, laugh and live” is the motto of the U3A motto.
