u3a - Learn

u3a gives members local and national opportunities to learn a wide range of things at low cost. You can share your skills with others, take up something new and develop your interests in a friendly atmosphere.
Over 40,000 u3a interest groups meet in the UK every week, face to face and more recently, online.

The choice is endless, and reflects local interests: from cookery to creative writing, philosophy to films, maths to mindfulness. The decisions about what to do are made by local members.
