Swansea U3A


University of the Third Age

Description of Organisation:
The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!

Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them.

The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust.


Services Offered: Swansea U3A now has over 1500 members. We have weekly lectures and over 100 Learning Groups ranging from Anthropology to Youniverse Explorer.

We also hold social events including coffee mornings, outings, St. David’s day events, quizzes and Christmas lunches.

We use many venues for our different learning groups. For full details of all of our activities, please see our website at u3aswansea.org.uk
