About the U3A
The U3A in the UK started by the creation of the 'Third Age Trust' in 1982 as registered charity, No.288007 and limited company No 1759471.
Since we learn for the pleasure of it, no qualifications are required and none are given. The Third Age Trust is a member of AIUTA which aims to promote active learning, research and community service among Third Agers everywhere.
