The Third Age

Sydney University of the Third Age (Sydney U3A) offers hundreds of intellectually stimulating courses throughout Sydney.

Sydney U3A courses are a wonderful way to acquire new knowledge and skills in an informal, friendly atmosphere. There are no prerequisites, and no exams.

Whatever your interests, there is a course for you

Languages, literature, drama, poetry, music, theatre, ethics, history, geography, travel, writing, current affairs, personal development, philosophy, science and technology, and computers are just some of our courses.

Other activities include singing groups, learning to play music, yoga, tai chi, bushwalks, bird watching, card games, and restaurant visits.

A Course Book with details of all our courses and activities is posted to members twice a year. The Course Book is also available online.

Sydney U3A has seven regions. U3A members can attend courses in any region, not just their local region. Bookings are essential: the booking details for each course are in the Course Book.
