U3A is the University of the Third Age, which is the age of active retirement, coming after the age of youth and work and home making.
University is a loose term - there are no academic requirements for membership and no exams!
U3A is for retired or semi-retired persons over 50. U3A courses cover interests such as sport, exercise, the arts, language, technology, travel, dance, geology, history, language, craft, gardening and the sharemarket. U3A requires no prior learning.
U3A in Toowoomba Inc. is one of many similar U3A organisations in Australia. Formed in 1990 we provide leisure and educational courses to local seniors. We have over 2000 members and we offer 180 courses each week at present; all of these at a low cost.
Many classes are held at 7 Matthews Street, Toowoomba. Management and tutors are volunteers. Our motto is 'NEW INTERESTS - NEW FRIENDS'. We look forward to welcoming you at the Toowoomba U3A.
