About Us

U3A is designed for people who are no longer working full-time, but wish to continue to learn and broaden their horizons.

“Learning for the joy of learning”

U3A offers academic and skills subjects, arts and crafts, exercise and social activities. Classes are conducted in various venues on the Sunshine Coast. The year is divided into four terms, similar to school terms.

There are no examinations. For an annual membership fee members can attend as many classes/activities as they wish. Note: Some classes may have a waiting list, and some classes are in venues that require a contribution toward the venue rent from members.

U3A is an all volunteer organisation.
