Learning and fun for those no longer in full-time employment
York u3a is one of the largest u3as in the country with around 1,600 members. Membership is open to those no longer in full-time work. No qualifications are required and none are given. Members bring a desire to learn and a willingness to share their skills and enthusiasm. York u3a is one of 1000+ u3as in the UK, which all consist of interest groups and events covering a wide range of opportunities for members to explore new ideas, skills and activities together.
Talks - Our monthly talks are open to all members, after coffee there are talks by invited speakers on a wide variety of subjects.
Travel - Day and longer trips in the UK and overseas are organised by our Travel volunteers. These are open to all members who wish to share in new travel experiences.
Groups - Some are 'study' topics that run for a period of time, with most being from September to July, and others are groups that can be joined at various times of the year. See our Groups page for the full list. Each Group Leader can give more detailed timings and availability, they can be contacted via each group page.
