About Us

What is U3A

University of the 1st Age (U1A): was your school years
University of the 2nd Age (U2A): was your working years
University of the 3rd Age (U3A): is your retirement years.

The word ‘University’ is not of the traditional bricks and mortar learning institutes but a stage of life.
