2018 U3A Summer School

National Summer Schools’ Residential study programme for 2018.

This year the U3A education committee are organising two schools, one in July and the other in September, providing an exciting programme covering 19 courses.  There is a wide range of subjects on offer including Opera, French, Cryptic Crosswords, Maths, Art Between the Wars, Musicals and writing a TV Soap!

This is only possible because the tutors – who are members of U3As from across the UK – bring with them an impressive array of experience and knowledge.  They give up a significant amount of their time to provide attendees with a high quality, active learning experience which is both participatory and enjoyable.
