Welcome to Carmarthen U3A
University of the Third Age?
For those unaware of what this and all U3As are, they are part of a nationwide network of volunteer learning groups aimed at encouraging people to share their knowledge, skills and interests in a friendly environment. There are no upper or lower age limits but U3As are for people in their ‘third age’ – retired or semi-retired.
No formal qualifications are required to join and none are given. It’s not an academic institution which awards degrees. The term ‘University’ in the title is used in its original sense (i.e. groups of people wishing to study or discuss a subject). The U3A movement in the UK is supported by its national umbrella body, the Third Age Trust.
Here at the Carmarthen U3A we would love to hear from members – new and existing – who have a particular interest and would like to lead a group around that topic. So give us a try, meet new people, engage with new activities and be part of a national movement committed to enriching the lives of its members.
