The University of the Third Age is an educational self-help organisation for the retired or semi-retired. It draws on the wealth of knowledge and experience of its members to set up study groups and common interest groups and to organize recreational activities.

  • is an autonomous local University of the Third Age affiliated to a nationwide movement;
  • has  over 1,700 members in this area;
  • offers over 100 courses and interest groups;
  • has group excursions and visits to theatres and concerts;
  • holds regular monthly meetings with talks of general interest.

Please note that  the current subscription is £22.00 and will cover membership through to 31st August next year inclusive. This entitles you to join as many groups as you like, subject to availability, and you will automatically receive the latest prospectus when it is published at the end of July or early August. Meanwhile you can download the current prospectus, to read on screen or print  from the downloads menu in our members' lounge, which is accessed via the members' door.

The Third Age arrives when a person becomes free of the restrictions and responsibilities of the Second Age of full-time employment. The Third Age can be a time of creative activity and fulfilment. Anyone can join who shares our principles of self-help learning. No qualifications are required. We believe that everyone in the Third Age has something to contribute.

To find the right course for you please use our search facility above.  Search by Subject or even Day of the week e.g if you are free on Thursday type 'Thur' and hit return to see what's on  Thursdays.
