Study Groups

Study Groups are organised and arranged by members according to their interests. Some Groups are taught by an expert in the field whilst others share the experiences and knowledge of group members, following the principle that "Those who Learn shall also Teach and those who Teach shall also Learn".

Some of the Groups listed below are Joint Groups with other local U3As. A Joint Study Groups Guide is available (just follow the link on the right of this page).

If your area of interest is not represented, why not start a new group? The Study Group Co-ordinator will be pleased to provide advice on getting started should you need some assistance.
