The Third Age simply means the period following our working lives and a University is an environment where we continue our education.
So please don't be put off by our title - U3A has no entrance qualifications and there are certainly no exams! It's just that we don't believe that education is finished when we leave full-time schooling or when we cease from paid work: education is a lifelong process of sharing our experiences with others and - no less importantly - learning from them. York U3A has well over 1,300 members. Our members come from a variety of working backgrounds and their enthusiasm for sharing what interests them enables us to offer an unusually wide range of activities.
Whether your interests are intellectual, aesthetic, practical or any combination of these, there is almost certain to be something for you.
However, while we are proud of the range of our activities, we are not complacent. There is always room for new ideas - so maybe there is something that you can offer us?
