u3a is a UK wide, cooperative movement of people no longer in full time employment who come together to continue their educational, social and creative interests in a friendly and informal environment.

Each of the 1000+ u3as across the UK host interest groups chosen and run by members, for members. Members help each other in their learning groups and form strong and meaningful relationships together with a sense of community, social wellbeing, fellowship and belonging. The subjects are wide-ranging – from Architecture and Biology to Yoga and Zoology with every topic you can think of in between. There are at least 10,000+ U3A interest groups taking place in the UK every week.
