Introducing the U3A

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a learning co-operative of people no longer in full time employment. Anyone can join - all you need is interest and enthusiasm. No qualifications are required and none are given.

The U3A offers the opportunity to share your knowledge, experience and talents with others and learn from them in friendly surroundings. Please use the links on these pages, and the Menu 'buttons' above, to find out more about our U3A and of those in the Sussex Region.

This year, Brighton & Hove U3A celebrates its 30th year. If you are not already a Member, do join us and see what you are missing!
