The University of the Third Age in Cambridge is an independent self-financing organisation that was founded in 1982. Its aim is to provide educational and social activities to those no longer in full-time employment and as such there are no age restrictions.
Most of the tutors are themselves members. Other members arrange visits to museums, galleries, theatres and concerts and occasionally organise short trips in this country and longer tours abroad.
A revised constitution in the spring of 2007 enabled us to offer an even wider range of courses and activities, hence the formal change of name to The University of the Third Age in Cambridge (2007).
The U3AC is very much run by the members themselves so there is a continuing need for help with various activities. In particular there is a need for more members to teach a class or lead a group. If you would be willing to help in this or any other way please fill in the ‘Helping’ section of the application form or get in touch with The Office.
To join U3AC and/or enrol for classes please fill in the application form which accompanies the Programme and send with your payment of £74 plus any additional course fee as shown in the Programme, plus an enrolment fee of £5 for new members.
When you have received your confirmation letter and membership card you may start to attend courses.
The annual subscription of £74 is the fee to become a member of the organisation; it is not a payment for classes. Membership entitles you to attend the Wednesday lectures, to apply for up to 6 classes and the opportunity to apply for various visits that are arranged throughout the year.
The best time to join us is when the annual programme is published at the end of June. If you let us have your name and address we will post it to you.
Yes, of course, you are welcome to join at any time during the year but once allocation has taken place in August some courses become full; it is best to contact us about vacancies before actually applying.
To request the programme, or to make enquiries please email us.
