Life in a u3a

Across the UK, u3a members draw upon their knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other for pleasure; learning is its own reward.

It's all voluntary; a typical u3a will be home to many activity groups covering hundreds of different subjects - from art to zoology and everything in between.

It’s local, social, friendly, low-cost and open to all. Join a u3a, start learning together and make the most out of life.

  • "I was lucky enough to get my retirement at 60. u3a came and it was just a gift from heaven. I’m encouraging everyone I meet – it is an added value to your life."

    Christina, Croydon u3a

  • "u3a is a good way of making friends, meeting people. And importantly, you know that you’re meeting people with a shared interest."

    David, Dawlish & District u3a
