The University of the Third Age


Welcome to the Cardiff U3A website.

The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides opportunities for retired and semi-retired people to come together to enjoy good company and to learn together, not for qualifications, but for its own reward.

We have over 700 members and have 43 active interest groups. We have a varied programme on offer and hope to add yet more areas of interest in the future. See What's on and When.

We very much welcome new members. We are also well aware that taking that first step over the threshold is the most difficult. We will do our best to make you feel welcome.

We hope you enjoy browsing through the activities we offer. Our aim is to provide interesting learning opportunities and pastimes in a relaxed, friendly environment.

We look forward to meeting you.
