Join the University of Third Age

University of the Third Age (U3A) - Beckenham

u3a is a UK wide, cooperative movement of people no longer in full time work who come together to continue their educational, social and creative interests in a friendly and informal environment.

Meet other people with similar interests: learn new things and share your skills

Joining a u3a is a great way to find and develop new interests and make great friends in a relaxed environment. It doesn’t cost much to join - on average it costs less than £15 to join a u3a near where you live.

How to Join

There are two ways to join a u3a: find a local u3a group near you and get in touch with them directly, or join our online-only group called Trust u3a.

Each of the 1000+ local u3as in the UK are run as individual charities and are responsible for managing membership and organising courses and meetings. Joining a local u3a will let you meet up in person with others in your area to learn and make friends, while the Trust u3a is run online using software like Zoom to deliver engaging courses and a community accessible to anyone across the UK regardless of location.
