The Third Age is defined by a time in your life when you are no longer in full time employment or raising a family. u3a members are typically retired or semi-retired, using some of their leisure time to share their expertise, talents and enthusiasm with like-minded people, and perhaps develop new interests.
There is no curriculum, no entry qualifications, no examinations and no certificates.
u3a have over 50 special interest groups and each month identify new ones where a member will volunteer to organise the first meeting which will develop in accordance with what the members want to do.
