The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!
Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them.
The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust.
Its philosophy is best expressed in one of its mottos - "It's never too late to learn"
Each local U3A is affiliated to the U3A Trust and belongs to the regional network.
Edwalton, Gamston & District U3A (EGD U3A) is one of the newest U3As in the East Midlands.
