University of the Third Age, U3A

Enjoy the opportunity of making new friends and the company of like minded souls, in a pleasant, social and educational environment.

Please read more about U3A on ‘The Third Age’ page or browse the various pages. Our current and past semesters are available on the ‘Course Information’ page.

“At middle age the soul should be opening up like a rose, not closing up like a cabbage”  John Andrew Holmes – 1927

U3As are voluntary, self-help organisations. No qualifications are required to join, neither are qualifications awarded. U3As tap the great reservoir of knowledge, skills and experience found amongst the U3A community.

The first University of the Third Age was founded in Toulouse, France in 1972. The idea spread rapidly throughout France and other countries, particularly continental Europe. An international Association of U3As was established by1975. In the latter part of 1984 the first Australian U3As were formed in Melbourne.

The Gloucester District Branch is a relative newcomer to the Australian U3A community, following its inauguration on Wednesday 27th August 2008.
