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. Click here to see 'How To Join' on our Membership page.

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.

All of our Group Leaders and Committee Members volunteer their time and expertise to help our U3A to run smoothly. If you would like to see a new group started and / or feel able to lead a group, please contact our Groups co-ordinator, Alan Cooke, in the first instance.

This year, Brighton & Hove U3A celebrates its 31st year. If you are not already a Member, do join us and see what you are missing!
