Welcome

If you have reached the point at which you have finished working full-time or raising your family and have time to pursue your interests or just try something new, the Cardiff u3a is for you.  We have a ‘university’ of members who draw upon their knowledge and experience to teach and learn from each other but there are no qualifications to pass – it is just for pleasure.

These aren’t courses or formal training, just groups of people who get together regularly for mutual interest in a subject such as history or singing or practicing a language and many other areas of interest. People who believe that learning is its own reward.

See the link About the Cardiff u3a for more details.

Want to Get Involved or Help Out?

See our Situations Vacant page which has details of volunteer posts within Cardiff u3a.
