U3A encourages co-operative rather than competitive learning. Courses vary greatly and change from semester to semester. Courses may include lifestyle and practical skills. Musical, theatrical, literary, artisitic, cinematic, scientific, environmental and historical interests.
There is no great divide between learners and presenters. A student in one class may become a tutor in the next. No academic qualifications are needed to join or to lead courses. There are no exams or grading of students’ achievements.
If you would like to join our membership, we have two intakes per year - January for the February-June semester and in June for the July-December semester.
