University of the Third Age

We are a non-profit organisation of “third age” people (generally over 50 years, retired or not working full time) sharing educational, creative and leisure activities.

The three ages of life –

    • The first age is from birth to adulthood
    • The second age encompasses the time we spend establishing ourselves, working, marriage, families and the like
    • And the Third Age is retirement, the time we have put aside to play and enjoy life, that time is now

Aims and guiding Principles

We are a learning co-operative, enabling members to share many educational, creative and leisure activities. Members, through sharing their knowledge, skills, and experience learn from each other.

We offer a combination of opportunities to study, create, socialise and contribute to members’ overall health and well-being.

Members form interest groups covering as wide a range of topics as they desire, by the members, for the members. There is no distinction between the learners, presenters or group leaders; they are all U3A members.

No qualifications are sought or offered. Learning is for its own sake, with enjoyment being the prime motive, not qualifications or awards.
