U3A in Canberra
The Third Age may be the best time of your life! Our First Age is childhood. Our Second Age is the mid part of our lives, with the responsibilities of work and family.
Our Third Age is a time when we are free to explore, learn, and share knowledge. Now is the time to learn something new, rediscover old skills, to keep an active mind and to meet new friends.
In common with U3As throughout Australia and many other countries, U3A ACT provides learning in a broad range of areas, always in a social context.
U3A membership is open to people 50 and over. Most are no longer in full time employment but are enjoying the third age of their lives. We provide opportunities for learning by bringing together members with knowledge and skills and members who wish to learn.
We also encourage members to organise learning opportunities by researching and drawing on the resources available in the wider community.
The ACT has a single U3A. It includes members living in Queanbeyan and Yass and surrounds. As such we are very large with over 5,250 members.
We offer a wide range of courses — over 300 a year. Some run all year while many run for shorter periods.
We also offer a public lecture series with COTA from June to October; and there are tours, walks and outings to places of interest, open to all members.
In addition, we have an agreement with the University of Canberra that allows members to attend classes there through a formal registration process.
Our handbook provides more information on our organisation, the range of courses that we offer, and ways in which you can be involved.
