Welcome to Newcastle U3A

Learning opportunities for retirees

Are you retired or semi-retired?   Let yourself grow through U3A

U3A is a self-help international organisation, where retired and semi-retired people provide courses for each other.  At Newcastle U3A (NU3A) our courses range from academic, skill, physically active and special interest classes, to relaxed social get-togethers.  Browse our Frequently Asked Questions or Newsletters , or view our 30th anniversary videoOlder but Bolder’, for a sneak peek.
