U3A - the University of the Third Age - is an international movement that encourages people to take part in lifelong learning for pleasure. U3A allows people to enjoy educational, creative, social and leisure activities in a relaxed environment at low cost. There are no prior qualifications, no exams and no degrees awarded.

U3A Yarra City aims to

  • Provide opportunities for seniors for lifelong learning and social activity
  • Harness the cultural diversity, life experience and knowledge of older people
  • Provide affordable self-help educational and recreational programs for mature adults
  • Foster relationships with other community organisations which have complementary or compatible aims
